We conceived this as a single day event but the level of interest is so high the committee voted to extend it to both the 23rd and 24th.
This is a free, open event for everyone who has an interest in the history of this parish. It follows the previous Wednesday night’s talk and gives you a chance to talk one-to-one with our team and see the resources we use to investigate the heritage of Slimbridge. We will have detectorist equipment, geophysical scanning equipment and the industrial size drone we use to scan fields for crop marks on hand to show you.
We will have a number of displays including artefacts from detecting, pottery from the digs we have done and lots of pictures from geophysical scanning and drone photography. We can explain what you are seeing and what remains to be done and also how you might like to be involved. And there is still a lot to discover! If you want to join the society we will have membership cards and programme flyers for 2022 ready for you to take away.
Our local Finds Liaison Officer, Kurt Adams, will be on hand to help identify any finds you have made and Stroud Museum in the Park will also be represented.
Aside from the archaeology we will also give you a chance to see all the other heritage related projects we have been working on.
We will be in the village hall from 10am to 4pm both days and hope to have both refreshments and lunch available. More details nearer the time.
Annual membership will include online access to all the Society’s records for the calendar year, free entry to all presentation meetings and refreshments afterwards.Join Us Now
