Part of the display of finds from the dig.

The Nettleham Heritage Association invited everyone to their celebration event for the Bishops Meadow Community Dig. It took place in the Nettleham Hub and library on Saturday 25th March 2017 and ran between 1.00pm and 4.00pm. There was a small display of the finds, during the event we had a video of the dig itself running continually. The many visitors showed great interest and knowledge asking many pertinent questions

Cola was busy showing us all how to make butter in the traditional way. I must admit it tasted great. Whilst Avril, assisted by Cola, demonstrated their weaving skills
