Will Colton, Cameron Dolan and Tom Hibbert of the Lower 6th spent a day volunteering for this year’s Dig It! Project organised by the archaeology department of Sheffield University.

The project is hoping to uncover the foundations of Edwardian bandstands which were a feature of the Sheffield parks. There is photographic evidence and Geophysical surveys help to pinpoint where to dig. This year they were based in Meersbrook park.

They all worked tirelessly in the heat to get the trench started. They were congratulated on their work which allows the more detailed investigation to begin. The dig ends on July 4th.
