Campden House Open Weekend

Open Day exhibition June 2017. People looking at the display in the marquee.

Last weekend (17th & 18th June) The Landmark Trust opened the site, including the Banqueting Houses, to the public.  We took the opportunity to put up a display about the CCHS Campden House project, giving a brief overview of the historical background and more detailed information about the digs, the geophysical survey, the finds, etc.

Over two hundred people came to look at the display over the course of the weekend, including a representative from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Marking finds and talking to visitors

Huge thanks to Judith for the fantastic exhibition and for co-ordinating our side of the event and to Helen and Judith who did long shifts in the heat of the day manning the stand.

[with apologies for the weird colour of the photo – the camera obviously couldn’t cope with the heat any better than the rest of us!]
