Landscape Archaeology Masterclass with Stewart Ainsworth

Join Stewart Ainsworth and friends at one of his favourite scheduled sites in England.
Epiacum Roman Fort sits within 400 acres that have been gently farmed for millennia. Close to Alston town, it is famous for its moles who have excavated many Roman artifacts and the site also featured on ITV’s ‘Robson Green’s Tales of Northumberland’!

This is a masterclass in reading and interpreting the archaeological landscape surrounding the Roman Fort, which has evidence of 3000 years of human habitation!

Course details:

Arrive on the evening of Friday 18th May. Participants will have a joint evening meal followed by an introductory lecture about the heritage of the site and recent research from Stewart Ainsworth and site historians.

Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th will be spent on site with Stewart delivering tutorials to develop your landscape archaeology skills in the field, examining features suspected to range from prehistoric to medieval.

Both weekends are £225. Contact for more details and booking form. Local accommodation can be booked independently!

NB this is a repeat of last year’s masterclass
