Archaeology volunteers needed at Gunby
VOLUNTEERS are needed to take part in an archaeological survey in the grounds of Gunby Hall.
Heritage Lincolnshire and the National Trust are looking for people to take part in the survey of a medieval village which, deserted in the late 1500s, is well preserved as a series of bumps and hollows in the parkland at Gunby.
Heritage Lincolnshire with the help of volunteers intends to survey and map the earthworks.
Community archaeologist with Heritage Lincolnshire, Tom Whitfield, said: “We are incredibly excited about this chance to finally be able to map the deserted village, it’s a great opportunity for anybody interested in history or archaeology to get involved in real life, front line research.”

The survey is free to attend and runs on July 18, 19, 21 and 22 as part of the nationwide Festival of British Archaeology which aims to boost public engagement with archaeology.
As part of the project, volunteers will gain skills in archaeological survey techniques and have the opportunity to learn about deserted medieval villages and the medieval landscapes of East Lindsey.
Heritage Lincolnshire are aiming for volunteers on this project to leave with all the skills necessary to continue surveying unmapped archaeological earthwork sites throughout the county, raising awareness of the rich archaeological heritage of Lincolnshire and East Lindsey.
