Big Dig 2021 - Hursley Park
23rd August – 5th September 2021
The Annual WARG dig this year was in Hursley. Setup is on the Monday 23rd August and Tuesday 24th and we expect to start digging on Wednesday 25th. Finds processing starts on the 28th August to allow sufficient finds to be excavated over the first 3 days.
The dig finishes on Sunday 5th September and the site will be fenced until Saturday 11th September when IBM hold their annual Hurfest. We will have people on hand to explain the dig at Hurfest and explain what WARG does. This does mean that our dig is a few days shorter this year so it will be important to register quickly.
We will start backfilling on Sunday 12th September and as usual we are looking for as many hands as possible particularly on that day. Transport back to the WARG container will be on Wednesday 15th, giving time to complete backfill and cleanup on the Monday and Tuesday.
