Wing in Buckinghamshire has some of the oldest archaeological remains in the county. With the Saxon cemetery and Church, the “Castle Mound” the original Ascott House gardens and the Rothschild Ascott House, there is plenty to see.
Over the last 3 years the Group has been digging in the village and surrounding area as well as putting on exhibitions for residents and friends of the Group on Wing in WWI and WWII.
In 2015 we created three new committees, Archaeology, History and Family History. These have worked really well and we have achieved lots more than usual!
On Saturday (18) we are having geophys on the Recreation Ground. We are lucky enough to have the Museum of London coming to use a new piece of equipment. Anyone is welcome to come along from 10.30am to have a go. Please make sure that you have no iron/steel zips, belt buckles or coins/keys in pockets as this can interfere with the machine. We will have the football club open so things can be left safely in there.
Saturday 26 we are digging in Vicarage Lane. We have had to temporarily return our big sieve and we are looking for more volunteers than we would usually need on a dig. If you would like to join us for a few hours then please let us know.
We will also be digging the Recreation Ground on Sunday 24 July so please come and join us.
