If like me you are based in or near Sheffield then I want to bring ‘Archaeology in the City’ to your attention. This community outreach program run by students at the Department of Archaeology at the University of Sheffield is an excellent way to get involved with and more informed about archaeology.
They regularly run events such as the Woodland Heritage Festival in May/June. They also run a monthly talk in the Red Deer pub entitled ‘Archaeology and Ale’ and if you can’t make it then there’s a podcast!
Go and get involved!
