ENHAS dig around Butts Brow led by Greg Chuter

In July ENHAS will be carrying out a dig at Butts Brow led by Greg Chuter. It will consist of three trenches over three earthworks around a nearby area.

There is already a list of would-be participants and places are limited but we will endeavour to get any ENHAS members who want to get involved in some way.

Now we realise not everyone wants to, is capable of, or can come every day. So let us know your do’s and don’ts. For example there will be jobs such as digging, some pot washing, drawing, chatting to passers by etc. Greg and the more experienced members will also give training.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Bob Williams Email: .

It is also planned to follow up with further training sessions in identifying pottery, bones, glass and metal together with training on survey work and illustrating artefacts. Again please contact Bob if you are interested in coming along to these workshops.


As agreed at the AGM, from September our monthly programme of speaker meetings will take place on the third Friday of the month, not the second!

The first talk will be on Friday 15 September 2017 when
