To wet your appetite for next weekend here is a copy of the press release.

During this coming Bank Holiday Weekend (Saturday 28th– Monday 30th May) members of Stour Valley Community Archaeology (SVCA) will be engaged in another of its series of community archaeological excavations, investigating the location of a ‘lost’ Roman road and a Romano-British settlement close to the site of a known Roman Villa. Based in the vicinity of Bulmer & Gestingthorpe, Essex, this will be an opportunity to discover more about our local heritage.

As well as using traditional excavation techniques, there will be an opportunity ( as part of a joint venture with Long Melford Heritage Centre) to use Ground Penetrating Radar equipment to help survey the site.

Volunteers of all ages from the local community are welcome to join us and take part in our activities over the weekend ( no previous experience necessary) or just come to visit and find out what we do!
