BIG GARDEN DIG - 5th & 6th September

THE BIG DIG IS BACK .... and it could be in your garden!! 😀👍🏻

We’re looking for evidence of the Port Seton Glassworks, and we need your help!

We’re looking for local residents in Cockenzie & Port Seton to take part in a big ‘garden test pit’ dig on 5th & 6th September.

You’ll dig your own small test pit in your garden, under socially distanced guidance from our team of archaeologists and experts, while our mobile media team will capture the dig as it unfolds with live content being broadcasted via our online channels!

We’re looking to target some particular areas of interest, so if your garden is within the red lines on the attached maps, and you’d like to take part, please get in touch!

Equipment and instructions on how to dig and record your trench will be provided. Finds will be evaluated and displayed in the Waggonway Museum.

We’re excited about the possibilities of this dig, and with your help we’ll uncover some fascinating history!!😀
