Field Work


Planned field work is notified to members by regular newsletter with all short notice projects advised via e-mail or telephone.  Unfortunately this type of work can only be offered to members of the society due to the requirements of our insurance policy and to comply with the society’s constitution.  We aim to run at least one excavation per year in addition to frequent geophysical surveys.
