    Worcestershire Archaeology Annual Dayschool 2012

    • 22nd October 2012

    Bookings are now open for the Worcestershire Archaeology Dayschool on Saturday 17th November. The popular one day conference, organised by Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, will showcase the latest results from archaeological fieldwork and other research for the public.

     This year the conference will again be held at the University of Worcester (St John’s Campus), on Saturday 17th November 2012.

    The topics covered in the Dayschool will be wide-ranging, all with a strong local focus. Highlights will include the recent archaeological excavations of the medieval monk’s cemetery at Pershore Abbey, and the discovery of the medieval stone bridge (and a Victorian cemetery) during the construction of the new flood defences at Upton. Enthusiastic archaeological groups are working with professional colleagues on a growing range of projects across Worcestershire, and there will be reports on some of these during the day, including an extensive project in the Wyre Forest. In recent years archaeologists have used new techniques to investigate ancient environments and landscapes in Worcestershire, and there will be chance to hear about the latest research, including new evidence from the site of the Worcester Arena.

    The Dayschool will run between 9.45 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. The cost is £15 (including tea and coffee: bring a packed lunch).
