Today DigVentures announced that they have radiocarbon dating results from their recent Coldingham dig. The results date their finds as Anglo-Saxon, and with other evidence found suggests that they’ve found the lost Anglo-Saxon monastery they were looking for.
The BBC News website today ran a story about the upcoming dig at Coldingham to try to find the lost 7th century Anglo-Saxon monastery. Archaeological crowdfunding specialists DigVentures are still seeking public support. You can back the project at various levels, allowing you to get involved in various ways, from following the dig progress online right up to even taking part in the excavation on site yourself.
Last year crowdsourcing archaeology initiative DigVentures were at Coldingham, investigating the history of the Priory.
They are returning to the site in summer 2018, and are currently advertising for supporters. Depending on the level of support you can follow the dig online, or even participate as a digger on the spot. See their website for full details.
