CAN YOU HELP WITH ANY OF THESE ITEMS?
Soon the Imagined Lands Project will be starting test pits in some of the gardens and the school in Tasburgh. This work will be supported by experienced people from the Caistor Roman Project.

To carefully retain all the finds for identification we are looking for the following items: Fruit/veg trays (the types found in supermarkets) seed trays, seed labels and permanent markers to identify the trays and detail exactly where the items were found. We will also need clean newspaper to line the trays and finally toothbrushes and nail brushes to clean up anything we find.

If you have any of these items spare could you please take them to Roger Burnett at 22 Orchard Way before the 20th.

You may have heard that the Norfolk Archaeological Trust has received a Lottery grant to work with local people on the discovery and celebration of Tasburgh Enclosure.

Will you help us to discover the history on your doorstep

We will be publishing a calendar of  events soon. But for now there are many ways to get involved: It’s all free and training, equipment are provided.

We are looking for:

  • RESEARCHERSRECRUTING NOW FROM BOTH COMMUNITIES

Working with experienced researchers to delve into the archives. This will help us to find out more about how the land and surrounding village have changed over the years. We are looking for about 12 people who can spare some time during the day in March.

  • DIGGERS – IN MAY 2017 [TASBURGH] and MAY 2018 [BURNHAM]

All ages to work with experienced archaeologists to identify and excavate ‘test pits’ around the land.   There are plenty of  jobs  – not just digging.

  • A CREATIVE HISTORY GROUP  – TASBURGH in 2017, BURNHAM in 2018

A key group helping us to make decisions about how we spend the grant.  With the help of artistic partners the group will plan community events inspired by the history that we uncover: a discovery day and exhibition, creative summer workshops and a final performance and lantern procession in September.
