dig in the park:
Dig in the Park project took place at Sizergh Castle during the summer
of 2013 and involved around 200 local people, including three local
schools. It was a partnership project between the National Trust and Levens
Local History Group and received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The
project offered local people and any keen amateur archaeologists to get involved
in three exciting archaeology theme projects; the excavation of a Bronze Age
burnt mound, excavation of a large bank and ditch in the parkland overlooked
by the castle, and the survey of a sixteenth century Great Barn.
Jamie works as the National Trust archaeologist covering the whole of the north west region, taking him from the Solway Coast in the north to Little Moreton Hall in the south dealing with a broad spectrum of archaeology sites and types.
