Archaeology training in Old Buckenham

Learn about archaeology at the Airfield 

Have you always had an interest in archaeology? Do you want to learn new skills and help out the 'Eighth in the East' project? If you live close to Old Buckenham Airfield, or can travel to the area,  someone wants to hear from you.
On Thursday 17 April they will be running a free one-day course providing an introduction to recording your local airfield. This event will be held at
Old Buckenham Airfield and the day will run from 10:30am until 3pm.
No previous experience is necessary with all the equipment provided. The day will start with an overview of how to record your information to be followed by practical sessions and the chance to test out your newly acquired skills in the field.
The aim is that on the completion of this course you will be able to use your new skills to record other airfield buildings and develop the project's knowledge of the vital archaeology relating to the Eighth in the East.
Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis. For further details and to book your place please email Community Archaeologist
Hannah Potter
If you can’t make this date further courses will be run at locations across the East of England during the project.
Please note that  lunch is not provided and you will need to be able to get to the airfield independently. It may be possible to reimburse meal costs and reasonable travel expenses, further details will be provided when you make contact.
