We very much regret to announce that with the continuation of the current Government Covid regulations volunteering at Bridge Farm cannot
now commence until the 19th July
as the restriction of 30 people at
outdoor gatherings will still apply.
We are looking at extending the dig season into early August.
Because of the extra safety requirements
this year we must ask everyone to formally apply to take part by sending the application form on the 'How to Join' page or just emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our list of COVID related requirements for participation will be sent to every applicant with a specific health questionnaire prior to your arrival.
NO ONE WILL BE ALLOWED ON SITE WITHOUT COMPLYING IN ADVANCE WITH OUR COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS

2020: Excavation cancelled but research carried on - see publications page for the newly posted 2014 Post-Ex Report
The 2019 season saw a return to the centre of our defended Romano-British settlement, Trench 7, to further investigate the features we uncovered in 2018. Thanks to the hard work of the volunteers and students, the two year's efforts revealed multiple post holes, large intercutting pits and possible hearths/kilns within Roman layers of the site that are full of a wide variety of Roman period pottery. The coins so far identified suggest the main phase of this area to be 2nd-3rd century.
2019 saw the pits grow deeper and larger with further excavation and two massive 1m wide postholes with substantial flint and chalk packing discovered adjacent to the road. More decorated Samian pottery, and fibula brooches were collected helping to paint the picture of life in the Sussex Ouse valley in the Roman period.
During the dig we were visited by a film crew from BBC4's 'Digging for Britain' followed by an interview session for our Director, Rob with Alice Roberts.
