A follow on volunteer archaeological dig took place in the original Cathedral precinct next to the Cathedral Hall, Bishops Close from 19 to 29 June 2010. This further community dig was organised as a direct result of the excavation undertaken on the site in 2009 and once again attracted huge local interest, as well as exciting discoveries. The Archaeologists, Charlie and Hilary Murray of Murray Archaeological Services Ltd, have kindly agreed to come and give a talk on the results which are due to be published shortly. Finds from the dig will be available to view at the talk, courtesy of Angus Museums. It is hoped that a selection of the finds will be displayed permanently in the Town House Museum.
In order to register for this free event please fill in the attached online registration form or alternatively call Gill Phillips or Linda Allan on 01307 47 3334 to book a place. The talk will be held in the first floor main gallery of the Town House Museum and as space is restricted, attendance will be limited to people who have pre-registered with preference given to the volunteers who worked on the dig where there are more applicants than spaces.
