The Big Dig Open Day: 13 July 2014

Sunday, 13 July 2014 from 10:30 to 16:30

About the event

IMG_0206Bournemouth University and the owners of North West Farm in Winterborne Kingston are proud to welcome you to The Big Dig Open Day, giving you the chance to see some of this year’s discoveries. You will be able to take part in a guided tour, meet the team, talk to experts and hear about the significance of the five skeletons that were found this summer.

This excavation is revealing a great deal about the daily lives of the Durotriges, one of the Celtic tribes living in the area prior to the Roman invasion and it is hoped the new skeletons will reveal more about those living there during the Roman times.

The local brewery, chip shop and bakery based at the entrance to the farm will also be open!

There will be a shuttle bus service from the car park to the site.

Under 16s must be accompanied by adult.

Please remember to wear suitable footwear, and depending on the weather, please bring wet weather gear or sun screen.
