Archaeologists in the Making

Two of our students, Wilfred Bazley and Martha Prickett, took part in a community excavation on the site of the Roman Bath House at Carlisle Cricket Club earlier this month. Five trenches were opened up to reveal the extent of archaeological deposits and to trace the route of a stone-lined drain. Finds from the dig included Medieval pottery, a Mesolithic flint core and many Roman artefacts including pottery, beads, coins, hair pins and intaglios (carved gem stones).

Both students have now participated in at least four archaeological projects and have been presented with their own trowel and an ‘Archaeology Skills Passport’.
