On the ground

Oak House, West Bromwich, a journey through time

Multiple dates and times available

An introduction to archaeology for everyone interested, exploring test pits on the front lawn of Oak House. Over 3 days we will be excavating a small area at the front of the early 17th century house looking for clues as to the history of the property. The house is situated right next to the last remaining parcel of Bromwich Heath so there is also the possibility of prehistoric activity showing itself. Members of the public, including accompanied youngsters, will be encouraged to help dig and sieve the spoil and also follow the artefacts through a washing and identification process. There will also be a stand explaining what archaeology entails and some of Wolverhampton Archaeology Group projects will also be on display.

The house itself will also be open for visitors to explore along with the gardens and cafe
