The Hagg 2020
Following a successful bid for funding from the Royal Archaeological Institute, SWAAG Chairman Dave Brooks is pleased to announce that our Summer excavation will take place from 1st to 15th July 2020. Last year's successful dig, which featured on BBC Four's "Digging for Britain", raised further questions about the site which we are keen to explore.
Details of how to take part in this exciting project will be available soon.

Meeting Tuesday 11th Postponed
Sadly our scheduled meeting has fallen victim to the weather as further strong winds, ice and snow have been forecast following the dramatic flooding caused by Storm Ciara. We will aim to reschedule this talk in the near future.

Members' Meeting Tuesday 11th February
Last year some of our members volunteered to help with finds processing for Northern Archaeological Associates. They were excavating an Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Hart and needed some extra help with washing some of the skeletons. On February 11th we will welcome Holly Drinkwater from NAA who will talk to us about this fascinating dig. The meeting starts as usual at 7pm at The Buck Hotel in Reeth. Non-members are welcome but are respectfully asked to make a voluntary donation. As we anticipate a large audience for this talk, non-members are also requested to reserve a place by emailing Sue@swaag.
