The Swaledale Project: Swaledale Big Dig

The proposal document for this dig (scheduled for 2014) can be read here.

The proposed project:
The aim, as stated above, is to add to our knowledge of the development of the settlements of Reeth and Grinton over the ages. To achieve this we propose to involve local people in digging a number of test pits (one metre square, maximum one metre deep) in gardens and public spaces around the centres of the two villages. If people in other local settlements wish to participate we will support them if resources allow.


Mick Aston's Masterclasses - Mick on Test Pits � and other masterclasses all of which are very informative and relevant to our work particularly the Big Dig.
