Event description
Come take part in uncovering Richmond's medieval past

About this event

As one of the centrepieces of the Richmond 950 celebrations, Solstice Heritage will be running an excavation at Richmond Castle open to volunteers in July and August 2021, supported by the Castle Studies Trust, Richmond and District Civic Society and English Heritage.

These excavation will be a fantastic opportunity for local residents to get involved in actually uncovering new and exciting information about Richmond’s fascinating past.

Solstice Heritage Partner Jim Brightman, who will be leading the excavations, is a Richmond School alumnus and has a life-long interest in the history and archaeology of the town: “Community projects like this are the type of archaeology we enjoy doing the most. There’s nothing quite like helping local people literally hold history in their hands”.

No experience is necessary to take part, and the excavations will be open to all.
