The next stage in the search for the site of a Roman villa or Romano-British farmstead will be a major field-walking survey of Hall Close field, adjacent to the Memorial Hall playing field where evidence of early masonry and significant finds already recorded. This survey will be on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd February under the direction of Richard Hoggett, Norfolk Community Archaeologist.
Using Binham Memorial Hall as a base, please assemble from 10.00 am each day with teams out on the field by 10.30 am. We will return to the hall for a lunch break and also about 3.00pm for review by Richard of the finds and conclusions. Tea and coffee will be available at the hall and hot soup at the break, but please bring your own packed lunch.
Please kindly note that on this occasion we only have permission from the landowner to carry out a supervised field walking activity and that use of any metal detecting equipment is not permitted.
If you are a first time visitor to Binham, the village hall is located on the Warham Road on the opposite side to Binham Priory. It is well signposted and parking is available.
If you have any queries about the day please don’t hesitate to contact Pennie Alford on firstname.lastname@example.org
