Woodland Archaeology Course, High Green, Sheffield

February 11, 2014

Following unprecedented demand we have organised a further woodland archaeology course to be held in at Chapeltown, South Yorkshire on 24th March.  The course will include an illustrated talk, documentation, maps and books.  In the afternoon a guided woodland visit will be to see and identify archaeological features and carry out a practical mapping and recording exercise in the wood.  Woods can be very good at protecting historic features as earthworks (lumps and bumps) that have been ploughed out in farmed land.  Woods also have their own archaeology of features such as charcoal hearths and boundary banks that are directly related to the earlier management of the woodland.  For more information contact Ben at ben.scotting@yorwoods.org.uk
