By Sarah B Dhanjal, on 10 June 2012

So…  It’s that time.  Events are coming up and we are getting ready to dig!  Literally and metaphorically.  Here is a little more information about what we are up to.

June 11th-15th, The Hendon School Community Archaeology Project (Hendon), bringing together staff and students from the UCL research team, the Hendon and District Archaeological Society, and Hendon School to conduct archaeological research on Hendon House, a sixteenth century manor house whose remains lie beneath the school playing field.
