The dates for the 2011 season have now been confirmed! We’ll be digging from Monday 6th June until Sunday 31st July, and plan to work both inside Bamburgh Castle and in the Bamburgh landscape just as we did last year.
We have placements for about nineteen students for each week of the dig. We’re also looking for scholarship students to work with us for the full season, and will be offering places on our Dig for a Day scheme too so if you aren’t able to come for a full week, you can still get a taste of what archaeology is all about.
All the details about the 2011 season as well as guidance on how to apply for places are now up on the BRP website. We expect places to fill up fast, so get your application in as soon as you can to avoid disappointment!
More details about exactly what we plan to do in 2011 will be available soon – watch this space for further announcements!
