Hello! Jo here, I am one of the Project Officers for the Preserving the Past Project at Jubilee.
Preserving the Past Project at Jubilee aims to build on the research started last year by the Unearthing the Past team. The project will be in two phases – the first will be a Community Archaeology dig on the site which we hope as many people can get involved in. The second phase of the project will be sharing what we have learned and ensuring the site can be preserved for future generations to enjoy. We will be delivering the project in partnership with Oxford Archaeology North with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project will include:
Opportunities for volunteers to help on site, plan events, create a film about the site
A ten week dig on the site
Opportunities for schools and colleges to take part in workshops
Training in heritage skills, media and film for volunteers
Family friendly Events
We are holding a couple of information sessions for people interested in volunteering next week on Thursday 15th May at 10am and 1pm. This will be an opportunity to meet the staff and volunteers, sign up to join a dig day and watch footage from the previous dig. I have added a dates tab to the site too that we will keep updated so do check back to see what is coming up.
If you would like to discuss the project and how you might get involved please feel free to give me a ring on 01616 241 444 or my mobile is 07850 310 733.
I look forward to hearing from you!
