An open day is being held on Sunday by the Sedgeford Historical and Archaeological Research Project (SHARP).

There will be family fun with crafts and activities for children of all ages including pot making and Iron Age face painting.

Games and competitions are also planned together with a jumble stall, tombola, souvenirs, a display from a local metal-detecting club, refreshments and more.

The open day is from 10am to 4pm at Boneyard field, in Sedgeford.

SHARP is a long-term archaeological research project, whose primary objective is the investigation of the entire range of human settlement and land use in the parish of Sedgeford.

Established in 1996, it is one of the largest independent archaeological projects in Britain and firmly rooted in the local community.

In addition to a Roman Villa, Anglo-Saxon cemetery and First World War airfield, high profile finds from previous excavation seasons have included a hoard of Iron Age coins hidden in a cow bone and the terminal of the Sedgeford Torc.

The open day is an opportunity to find out the latest site news, with talks and displays on the work of the project and the latest finds. It’s also a chance to see the excavation in progress – who knows what might be discovered this year!

Entry to the event is free and parking is available (for a charge).
