Throughout the first two weeks of October we welcome back the Archaeologists of Blick Mead to the History Centre. They will be popping by throughout the two weeks to chat to our customers about the dig and about their particular areas of expertise. Our volunteers will be on hand to chat to visitors and we will have our very own
Blick Mead experiments happening in the Centre.
