The Brockley Garden Archaeology Roadshow

By Education & Community, News

On Saturday 17 July PCA joined the Hillyfields Midsummer Fayre with ‘The Brockley Garden Archaeology Road Show’.  The Fayre is an annual and very popular event in Lewisham, which is where our London office is based. Our stall, which showcased finds from Lewisham and nearby Greenwich, was also part of the Council for British Archaeology Festival of Archaeology 2021, focused this year on exploring local places. Our stall was a great success, with many visitors stopping for a chat or bringing some of their own garden finds for examination. Unsurprisingly, there is a vivid interest in local history and the little fragments of the past that make up our daily work! We will definitely try to make our presence a recurring feature of the Midsummer Fayre and other local events.
