“Digging for Britain” at the Bamburgh Research Project

We’ve been playing host to the BBC and 360 Production today. They’ve been filming with us for their upcoming programme “Digging for Britain”, a series which follows some of the summer’s biggest and most significant archaeological projects in the UK. It’s been a busy day all round for us!

We’ll bring you an update on Trench 1’s increasingly interesting finds tomorrow – we’ve had a lovely bone tool and some worked flint from the same context as the samian ware we reported on earlier in the week, in addition to some worked flint. We’ll also tell you more about the features coming up in Trench 3 – we’re starting to make little bit more sense of the archaeology this season!

We’ll also update you on the progress of the Bradford Kaimes – Jo, the BRP supervisor on site, called us from a very peaty trench to let us know they’ve reached organic material today.

“Digging for Britain” will be broadcast over this summer; as soon as we have dates, we’ll let you know! In the mean time, you can catch a glimpse of the project on this week’s Countryfile.
