Viking Survey in Sherwood Forest is Seeking Volunteers

The Friends of Thynghowe will launch their new Heritage Lottery funded project on Saturday 3 March 11.30am at Mansfield Museum.
An interesting visual display will feature photographs, information, maps and documents.
We are looking for volunteers to join us in becoming 'history detectives'.
We will be searching the forest for archaeological features from the Iron Age to the Second World War! Including the Viking Age when Sherwood Forest was the home to Viking warrior farmers and the cradle of early democracy.
We will be searching the records and archives for historical information on our area of Sherwood Forest.
Come and meet us and have a chat and find out what we have done and are planning to do.
The display will be in the Mansfield Museum from 3 – 28 March.

Our timetable of events starts in April.
April 14 - an Introduction Workshop to all aspects of the project, including 'taster' sessions, will be held at Sherwood Pines.
April 21 - Annual Perambulation (walk approx. 3 miles) along the 1816 boundary through Birklands.
Both are bookable events as places are limited.
