About the event

Chester residents are invited to come along as archaeologists clean the finds from the excavations carried out this year and last year by archaeology students in Grosvenor Park. There will be a ‘shop’ window display of a selection of finds mainly focussing on the remains of the late medieval/early post-medieval building and the Civil War activity.  Drop-by and see what the archaeologists are doing, what they reveal.  This is not just an exercise: it is at this stage finds may become exciting finds! 

Wednesday from 9:30am to 4:30pm and on Thursday from 9:30am to 4:00pm.  

It will not be possible for visitors to go inside the pavilion this year. 

Each year Cheshire West and Chester Council’s archaeologists, in partnership with the University of Chester, run a training excavation for archaeology students in Grosvenor Park.  During the summer archaeologists clean the finds from the dig in the park’s activity hut.
