Oakham Castle archaeological dig is taking place




An archaeological dig involving volunteers from the local community will set out to unearth hidden treasures at Oakham Castle when it gets underway next week.

The University of Leicester Archaeological Service (ULAS) is returning to the Castle to hold its latest community archaeology dig from Monday (June 10).

ULAS was commissioned by Rutland County Council to carry out the first community archaeology dig at Oakham Castle in April 2018 – funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the Castle’s wider £2.1million restoration. This year’s dig is once again funded through the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
