Open Weekend at Peter Symonds College
On Saturday 29th March 2014 Wessex Archaeology (WA) supported Peter Symonds College in Winchester at their archaeology open weekend.
The college has been undertaking its own archaeological investigations, excavating a number of small test pits around the school field. The project, co-ordinated by Steve Jarvis, aims to give the students a chance to discover archaeology and learn a range of new skills.
The open weekend provided local residents with the chance to view the excavation, take part in hands-on activities and speak to archaeologists from both WA and the society for Winchester archaeology and local history (WARG). The event was a huge success with over 120 visitors, and plans for next year’s project are already underway!
