An Introduction to Archaeology.
To celebrate the annual UK Festival of Archaeology, Merton Heritage Centre is hosting a special event to show people how they can get involved.
Discover how to volunteer on digs, join fieldwalking sessions, become a mudlark or try metal detecting. There will also be information about local societies, college courses, useful websites and the opportunity to view site reports and finds from local digs.
Speakers include Alexis Haslam, Community Archaeologist from the Fulham Palace Trust; Archaeologist Pamela Greenwood from Wandsworth Historical Society and the Museum of Wimbledon; Roger Mintey from the National Council for Metal Detecting and Merton Heritage Officer, Sarah Gould.
