Dig & Sow at Ashwell on Saturday 10th September

This coming Saturday, ACA will be in Ashwell (Hertfordshire) for the first of six test-pit excavations as part of the East of England’s 2012 Cultural Olympiad project, On Landguard Point.

On Landguard Point is a project about home: what ‘home’ means, what makes a home, how we forge our ideas of home, what shifts when we view home from afar, or host others in our own home. Through these archaeological excavations we hope to shed light on the domestic lives of people in the past. The events will be filmed by the Pacitti Company, the artists behind On Landguard Point, to form the content of a feature film to be released in time for the 2012 Olympics.

We will also soon be test-pitting in Ipswich (Suffolk) on Sunday 18th September and Hadleigh (Essex) on Saturday 8th October. The remaining excavations will take place next Spring.

For further information and to sign up to dig a test-pit please contact the Project Manager for On Landguard Point, Jenny Smith at jennysmithwork@googlemail.com or 01473 216545.
