Dig Appleby – breaking the ground

We are pleased to announce that this summer will see the launch of a Community Archaeology Project focused on the town of Appleby-in-Westmorland. Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, ‘Dig Appleby: Breaking the ground’ will see an archaeological investigation during the summer months focused primarily on the Norman town and its burgages. What was medieval Appleby like, who were the medieval occupants, and how did they live?

If you live in Appleby and would like to take part please contact us via digappleby@applebyarchaeology.org.uk
