Training with PAB: Searching for North Norfolk’s Deep History (Community Sieving Event), 25 October 2020

An opportunity to join archaeologists searching for evidence of North Norfolk’s deep history.

Middle Palaeolithic finds from the recent Bacton to Walcott Sandscaping scheme have added a new dimension to our understanding of the deep history of the North Norfolk coast.

On Sunday 25 October researchers from the Pathways to Ancient Britain Project will run a community sieving event aimed at recovering artefacts from beach deposits laid down as part of the recent Sandscaping scheme.

Participants will learn how to recognise humanly-worked flint and fossilised bone and will have the opportunity to chat about the archaeology and geology of this important Palaeolithic locale.
