THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL
FRAG has arranged a group visit to the excavation at Anchor Church Field, Crowland.
This is the second year of an investigation by Newcastle and Sheffield universities. Several buildings have been revealed and their association with the 8th century St Guthlac is being explored.
Our provisional plan is to meet at about 10.30am. FRAG members, Rex Gibson and Avril Lumley Prior will provide background to the site, the cult of St Guthlac, and the associations with St Pega. The excavation team led by Dr Duncan Wright and Dr Hugh Willmott will then be our guides, explaining what has been discovered so far this year. We expect the visit to last 60-90 minutes in total.
FREE for FRAG Members – £5 for Non members
To register your interest in joining the visit please complete the application form.
Until 12th August priority will be given to FRAG members and their guests. We will not be confirming places and plans until then. If we need to limit numbers this will be on a first come first served basis.
Payment for non members will be collected on the day.
Dr Duncan Wright is Lecturer in Medieval Archaeology within the School of History, Classics, and Archaeology at Newcastle University. Dr Hugh Willmott is Senior Lecturer in European Historical Archaeology at Sheffield University.
