Final Breaking New Ground training workshop
We are coming towards the end of our three year Breaking New Ground project, but there is still time to get involved. We will be running our final training workshop on Saturday 11th March at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse.
Our experts will be there to tell you about the wealth of archaeological finds that have been discovered in Breckland. Artefacts from as long ago as the Palaeolithic right up to three hundred years ago are regularly brought to our finds specialists. But how do they identify them?
On this training day you can learn about the objects that are commonly found in the Brecks from our Portable Antiquities Scheme team, and what you should do if you find one. Our excellent flint knapper, Jason Gibbons, will be there to demonstrate how stone tools are made and what clues you should look out for. You will also see all the finds from our excavation and field walking events, and have a go at processing them yourself.
If you can't make it on the 11th, we will be holding a number of follow up events for our earlier workshops, details of which will be made available on the website soon.
