Here at the Ticknall Archaeological Research Group, we are hysterical about history and we really do dig Ticknall. What's more, we are absolutely potty about pottery, so we started the Ticknall Archaeological Research Group in 2009.
Thanks to the efforts of Janet Spavold and Sue Brown, we got off to a flying start by securing substantial funding for a three year project to excavate important pottery sites in the Ticknall area. We will additionally be supported by the National Trust and Archaeological Project Services.
The project aims to involve local people in discovering Ticknall’s past. We will be running archaeological digs on pottery sites; Archaeological Project Services will supervise them and provide training for volunteers.
Yes, we are looking for volunteers!
Fascinated by archaeology programmes on TV? Excited by the buzz surrounding a new find? Always wondered if you could do it? Well now you can!
We are looking for new members to help with the project. Excellent training will be provided by the experienced professionals from Archaeological Project Services, so you will quickly get up to speed with a variety of skills such as fieldwalking and archaeological drawing. You will also be able to learn about how to identify pottery and other finds from the work. Keep up to date via our website.
