Fulham Palace Dig
Excavations in the Walled Garden
From the 25th-31st July, 1st – 3rd and 6th – 10th August 2012, Fulham Palace is running a community archaeology dig in the Walled Garden at the Palace. There will be three professional archaeologists on site who will be stripping back a layer of topsoil to reveal the archaeology underneath. Fulham Palace has a very long history, and previous archaeological digs have revealed Neolithic, medieval, and Tudor finds. The findings from the summer 2012 dig will be used to help refine plans for planting in the Walled Garden, which is a longer term project.
People are invited to get involved by coming along at the weekends between 11am – 4pm to see the site, find out more and to try their hand at some activities. Families are welcome. Alternatively, sign up to volunteer on the dig and work alongside the archaeologists or book onto one of the free archaeologist-led tours of the site. For more information about any of the activities, please visit the Fulham Palace website or email the Education Officer.
