Community Archaeology - Burgage Earthworks project (Southwell, Nottinghamshire)
The Burgage Earthworks project is a year-long community archaeology project funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund's All Our Stories programme.
We are working with the Southwell Archaeology group and providing training and support for group members in historical research, archaeological surveying, test-pit excavations and Finds Analysis sessions in order to explore the area of the Burgage Green in Southwell.
Antiquarian plans suggest the site is part of an Iron Age hillfort and old maps mark it as a Roman Camp, yet no fieldwork has ever been done on the site. We aim to investigate the site and see what we can find out.

Community Archaeology - Elmton Research Project (Elmton, Derbyshire)
The Elmton Research Project is a five-year community archaeology project based at Creswell Crags on the Derbyshire/Nottinghamshire border and is part of the Limestone Journeys project.
The project is funded by Creswell Heritage Trust through the Heritage Lottery Fund, and sees volunteers trained in archaeological fieldwork techniques.
We are currently in year three of the project, and have been investigating the village of Elmton looking for the Medieval village. So far we have carried out landscape surveys, fieldwalking, geophysics and small-scale excavations and will be continuing with these methods over the next two years.
The project won Best Volunteer Project for the District of Bolsover in 2011.
The group have also worked on three earthwork enclosures at Whitwell Woods, Derbyshire in conjunction with the Forestry Commission, in order to assess and record the archaeological remains there, and make suggestions towards future heritage management at the site. A report of the first season of work can be found at:

Project Title: Introduction


Please copy this template page, assign it a new project name, and then edit the copy. Please do not make changes to the original template page!
If you are going to add a large amount of information to this site, it might be worth splitting the text between different pages, such as an introduction page, results, discussion etc. The easiest way to do this is to add a series of links just below your project title, as shown on this page. This is done by typing the following:
@@[[ProjectBackground background]] | [[ProjectMethodology methodology]] | [[ProjectResults results]] | [[ProjectDiscussion discussion]]@@.
The @ signs at the beginning and end centre the text. Each item enclosed in [[...]] is a link to another section, the first part being the new page name, and anything after the first space is text shown to link to that page (because these pages don't yet exist they are underlined; following the link gives you the option of creating the new page). Simply replace 'Project' with the name of your own project in each case, e.g. [[CopmanthorpeBackground background]].
