Small scale 'community' digging
Hi everyone...

Been going through one of those times where I wish I could get back to my roots (to undertake a bit of mud archaeology).

I've been thinking about setting up a sort of 'community' archaeology dig... yet I'm not sure how to go about it (well, the practicalities of initialising one). I've got the people (myself as organiser, my partner and quite a few 'interested' others) and can get hold of the tools and gubbins to undertake the project. What I need is a 'site'! I have no problem in accessing the local HER (I use it in my day job) so I can find 'sites' of interest as a matter of course. Yet, for some reason, I'm not sure how to go about the setting up of the dig and who to contact in the first instance. I don't want it to be a major excavation, just a happy band of like-minded individuals (any level of experience and background) wanting a bit of mud-buddy fun (with obvious pub visits).

Anyone with experience in this? Just how do you go about starting one of these things? Any views and pointers gratefully received.
