Can you dig it? Volunteers needed for Radcliffe heritage project
Radcliffe's very own 'Time Team' dig has started on the scheduled ancient monument of Radcliffe Tower.
The Tower is the remains of a fortified pele tower, but there used to be a manor house and great hall next to it. Archaeologists are planning to uncover and record the remains of these two buildings, before deciding how to present them as part of site improvements.
Volunteers are still wanted for the Big Dig, which is led by Salford University and will take place until 8 November. People interested in taking part should email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 0161 295 3821. Training will be provided.
Volunteers are also sought to act as tour guides, researchers, evaluators and interpreters. Information on these opportunities and on other aspects of the tower project is available on a new website, www.radcliffeheritage.co.uk
