The dig gets underway.

The first couple of days have passed us by really quickly and we’ve had a huge amount of interest already.
We’ve had lots of visits from the children of Nettleham Primary School (with more to come) and plenty of engagement with a number of local walking groups and visitors to the Bishops Palace site. It been great to be able to talk to many of the visitors about the heritage and history of the site and we’ve even had some of them join us for a go.
