P7250038 - CopyWe're having a steady stream of bookings for our dig in Covington, near Kimbolton from Sat 4th - Sat 18th July. 37 people have booked so far! However, we still have spaces left, so if you'd like to take part, do send your booking form in a.s.a.p. You'll learn how to excavate, record, photograph and survey archaeological features, as well as meet people from across the Jigsaw Community. We're currently a bit short of old-hands to take part in our 'not just for rookies' package: giving fieldschool talks, supervising areas of the excavation and finds processing, shadowing professional archaeologists, and learning how to set up and machine a site. So we'd welcome people of all levels of experience!

At the end of the dig, on Saturday 18th July from 12-3pm in Covington, we'll be holding a grandly-titled 'Festival of Cambridgeshire Archaeology'! This will be similar to our Jigsaw Groups' Summer Conference last year in that we'd like to invite all our affiliated groups to bring displays of their work, but we'll also be giving tours of the excavation and opening it to the public as part of the CBA's Festival of Archaeology. There will also be refreshments of some sort - tbc! Group leaders: please be thinking whether you could bring a display. Group members: please ask your leaders whether you could bring a display on their behalf!
