FANE ROAD ARCHAEOLOGY GROUP (FRAG) – GEOPHYSICAL SURVEY TRAINING 17-18 OCTOBER 2018
After the success of a similar training session last year we are returning to Itter Park to provide an opportunity to become more familiar with geophysical tools and techniques. Though primarily a training event the area being surveyed is close to the Roman Villa so has the potential to reveal clues about the landscape in which it was located.
Participants need to be FRAG members, or members of JigSaw affiliated groups who can confirm that they are covered by their own group’s insurance
The event is FREE for FRAG members
