Archaeological Volunteers: Opportunities June/July 2019

The archaeologists from CWAC’s Cultural Service (Grosvenor Museum) will be starting a new project on Monday 3 June 2019 to wash the finds from the archaeological excavations that have taken place in Grosvenor Park, Chester. These excavations have so far uncovered a Roman road that once led to the east entrance of the amphitheatre; a large stone building, perhaps part of the medieval hospital and chapel of St. Anne destroyed during the Civil War; a huge ditch which is c.2.5m deep!

We would very much welcome your help. We will be in the Pavilion in Grosvenor Park, Chester from 9.30 am until 5pm on the following dates (please note some 12.30 starts and on Wednesday 24th July we will be running an early evening session until 7pm).
