Big Dig 2017 – Secrets of Studfold
Monday 3rd July 2017 to Friday 7th July 2017.
Help us reveal the hidden history of land belonging to Studfold Farm in Nidderdale by taking part in this community archeological excavation. This fascinating landscape has a rich history of human activity which reflects wider historical developments in Niddderdale and beyond. It has been the site of a recently discovered Romano – British settlement and a string of ancient field systems as well as a Byland Abbey Grange and an array of industrial activity including mine shafts, quarries and lime kilns. The Big Dig is open to adults and young people over the age of 12 (12 to 18 year olds must be accompanied by an adult) and will be led by JB Archaeological Services on behalf of the Upper Nidderdale Landscape Partnership Scheme.
