We will explore and share the story of Burgage Green, a mysterious piece of open grassland in the heart of our town.
Early maps show substantial earthworks not visible now. We will investigate, identify, record, plan these hidden remains and carry out test-pit excavations.
We will undertake training in research, practical archaeology and communication skills under guidance of Community Archaeologists and Nottingham and Leicester Universities.
We will share what we find and our new skills with the community.
We will hold an exhibition and capture our story ‘Beneath your feet on Burgage Green’ for ‘You Tube’ and our web platform.
