Sometime in the coming weeks there is to be a big dig for schools in Blackburn. It will take place in school hours, in term time. We have been asked by one of the schools if we can contribute to the success of their project by giving advice and sharing expertise, particularly in the identifying and handling of finds. Help with washing, conserving, labelling and storage of items will all be useful. If you would like to participate in this project as a mentor please let us know asap, by commenting. You will be helping to spread the word about archaeology and particularly about our Society.
