Some of our team are getting involved in the upcoming community dig at Lullingstone.
As part of the recently launched Darent Valley Landscape Partnership Scheme, a large-scale project run by Kent Downs AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund will take place. The community excavation and related activities will take place at Lullingstone Roman Villa this July, in celebration of the 70th anniversary of the original excavations.
Excavations open to members of the public to sign-up and take part in will be available to book between Monday 15 July and Sunday 28 July. There will be opportunities to wash and process finds, as well as dig. Children’s activities will also be available, as will a special exhibit on the original excavations at the villa (1949-61), talks and tours of both the villa complex and the current excavations.
