Our Community Excavation of the Glebe Field is getting ever closer, and ACHS and AOC Archaeology Group are thrilled to see the amount of interest sparked by what promises to be an excellent excavation.
Can You Dig It?
Our excavation of the Glebe Field is now FULL for volunteers. A huge thankyou to those who have signed up.
Access to our excavation will be via the High Street, through the Kirk Stables (please see map at the end of this post). Parking is available on the High Street. Please do remember warm and waterproof clothing, your lunch and sturdy shoes- and it may also be an idea to bring a pen/pencil and a notepad for your own notes!
How else can I get involved?
Fear not! We have numerous other ways you can get involved and experience our excavations.
Free Saturday Morning Workshops
Every Saturday morning from 10-12 we will be hosting FREE practical workshops- open to all- in the Kirk Stables, Aberlady. These range in topic, but cover most aspects of the archaeological process- led by the AOC Archaeology Fieldwork Team and others. Please see details below:

Family Fun Day: 2nd May
For the long weekend, we will be having a Family Fun Day on Monday, where families can come along and find out more about the site as well as getting involved in some craft activities. We will be making our own shields and masks, as well as some storytelling.
We would love to see you at some of our activities and join in our adventures finding out more about Anglo-Saxon Aberlady!
