Volunteers Wanted For Community Archaeology Dig


Experts from the Field Archaeology Team at National Museums Liverpool are leading the week-long dig from June 20-27.

The public can watch them throughout the week, and volunteers can get involved on Saturday, June 23, and Sunday, June 24. Local schoolchildren will also visit the project.

Fiona Sunners, from the Sefton Coast Landscape Partnership Scheme, said: "We wanted to organise a public archaeology event along the coast and Firwood House is perfect as it has a hidden past but is not an ancient site.

"We are very grateful for the support of the team from National Museums Liverpool who are experienced in running this sort of event.

"During the project we are hoping to discover when the house was built, who built it, what it looked like, why it was built there and when and why it fell into disrepair.

"This is a rare opportunity for local people to get involved in archaeology and find out more about the history of Sefton and the Formby area."

* Anyone keen to get involved in the dig (on June 23/24) can call 0151-934 2964, or e-maillandscape.partnership@sefton.gov.uk  People can also follow the dig on Facebook atwww.facebook.com/SeftonCoast (The site of Firwood House is off St Lukes Church Road, Formby, and further details will be on the website and Facebook page.)
