The volunteers will be joined by University of Reading students from Monday 7th August for 4 weeks. We will be exploring the industrial/craft-working zone and the burial area we found last year.
There will be guided tours on Saturdays at 2pm and 3pm, with places booked to help us manage visitor numbers. Go to www.ticketsource.co.uk/ . At ‘Find event’, search for Cookham Abbey.
Tours are free, but donations welcome – donations will be split 50:50 between Friends of Cookham Abbey and student welfare. We will post regular updates via the FCA Facebook page.
You can visit the site any time during working hours (Monday-Saturday 9-5) and our students will be very happy to show you the trenches and our finds. No need to book; Saturdays tend to be very busy. We regret that no visitor parking is available on site (Blue Badges only).
We look forward to welcoming you to the dig.
