As part of Cambridge Archaeological Unit's annual Prehistory Day, join professional archaeologists on a hands-on dig with a difference: Excavating a contemporary art work. The NW Cambridge outdoor sculpture 'Tomorrow, Today' by artists Karen Guthrie and Nina Pope was completed in 2014 with the help of many volunteers.
Handbuilt from thousands of tons of soil excavated for the site's archaeological survey, the artwork will eventually be buried under the encroaching NW development. In the meantime, weather erosion has begun to reveal small artefacts in the sculpture's surface, that can be excavated and recorded for posterity - with your help.
Expect to see worked flint, prehistoric pottery and more emerging as you learn about both this unique artwork and how to dig, identify and record artefacts. See Somewhere for more information.
The participants will gather at Cambridge Archaeological Unit, Chris Evans will walk participants to Gravel Hill Farm (a 5-10 minute walk). The group will go to the mud model to participate in the workshop.
Suitable for ages 8+.
