|THIS IS A PAST EVENT
The friends of Thynghowe invites you to learn new skills and help peel away the layers of history of a special part of Sherwood Forest.
The latest techniques will give us a detailed plan of the whole area - then it's over to you, to use newly learnt skills to take part in "ground training" to uncover remaining evidence of 4000 years of this living landscape. There's also a chance to investigate archives to find out about activities that may have taken place.
Join us as we take this incredible journey to conserve Sherwood's diverse heritage for future generations.
