Do you fancy helping in an archaeological dig?

Aberdeenshire Council are looking urgently for volunteers to help with a project dig at Haddo Country Park.

Archaeologists are carrying out a buildings survey on the old Haddo ice house next week on Monday 15, Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 May.

There is an opportunity for volunteers to assist the archaeologists, for around five volunteers per day to help out and get some experience of this type of work between 9am and 4pm.

The site is adjacent to the main car park and welfare facilities are relatively close to the site.

Volunteers would need to make their own way to Haddo, but reasonable expenses can be paid if evidence of expenditure in relation to the volunteering is kept.
