Worcestershire Archaeology Day School 2016

adst Published Tuesday, 1st November 2016

Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service (WAAS) are to host their annual Worcestershire Archaeology Day School.

The event, which has been running for over 25 years, sees archaeologists showcase some of their most significant and exciting work from the past year.

The Day School always proves to be very popular, regularly attracting up to 200 people and often selling out well in advance.

The topics covered will be wide-ranging, all with a strong county focus. Highlights will include details of excavations at Kempsey, Historic buildings in Worcester, Portable Antiquities Scheme, research on historic buildings on Droitwich High St, and fascinating finds of 2016 - including a recently discovered mammoth tusk.

Victoria Bryant, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service manager, said: "Our Day School is always very popular as so many Worcestershire people are interested in the heritage of their county and the latest discoveries. For us it’s a chance to talk to people and get a feel for what they think is important."

The Day School will be held at University of Worcester, St John's Campus, on Saturday 19 November from 10am-5pm.

Places are limited and need to be booked at a price of £20 each. Bookings can be made at http://www.thehiveworcester.org/explore-the-past-events.html
