Now our excavation has finished and the turf is starting to bed in, it is a good time to say a huge thanks to Jacky Nowakowski and James Gossip from Cornwall Archaeological Unit for leading the Reading the Hurlers excavation. CAU played a key part in the development of the archaeological element of Reading the Hurlers and co-ordinated the dig volunteers.
As well as leading the excavation, CAU also contributed to our public engagement programme throughout the dig week. Jacky was on-hand to provide background information to members of the public and school groups. We were also lucky enough to have the finds from the 1930’s excavation at The Hurlers which Jacky explained to site visitors. James ensured that that all volunteers had the opportunity to learn archaeological surveying and excavation skills – something that was greatly appreciated by our student excavators.
Many thanks from the RTH team – we look forward to working with you again!
