Activities and Events

We are co-ordinating a series of archaeological workshops and training events between August 2018 and January 2022 focused on Hume Castle and its surrounding landscape. Over the 3 years the training events and workshops will provide an opportunity to gain insight and learn practical archaeological skills including:

  • Desk Based and Historical Assessments

  • Monument Identification and Recording

  • Geophysics

  • Grave Yard Survey and Recording

  • Plan Table Survey

  • Historic Building Recording

  • Excavation

  • Archaeological Interpretation and exhibitions

  • Digital Illustration

Full details of each event and workshop will be distributed through project partners, social media, and local media outlets, and will provide a set number of bookable places for volunteers to get involved in the project.

The next events will take place in Spring 2021, including excavation, survey, and recording. Full details will be posted below shortly.

If you are interested in taking part in any of the activities please contact us to complete the volunteer booking form below, indicating the days that you would like to attend and which workshops you would like to take part in. Places are open to all ages and abilities (under 16’s will need to be accompanied by an adult). Due to the limited number of spaces in each activity each day, places will be allotted to ensure that priority will be given to those who have not taken part in certain activities over those who have signed up for the same activity over multiple days. If places on the activity are full, places on an alternative activity will be offered. This is to ensure that as many volunteers as possible get the opportunity to take part. Completed forms should be emailed to Ian.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us. More information regarding the workshops will be sent out in due course.
