Brodsworth Community Archaeology Group

Members of BCAG helping to clean finds from the excavations at Brodsworth

The Brodsworth Community Archaeology Group is an independent voluntary association comprised of individuals who wish to research, share and disseminate information about the history of the Brodsworth Area, South Yorkshire (which to us means the area covered by the parishes of Barnburgh, Brodsworth, Cadeby, Hampole, Hickleton, High Melton, Hooton Pagnell and Marr). The group is a partner in the Brodsworth Community Archaeology Project.

The Brodsworth Community Archaeology Group aims to develop wider participation in archaeological fieldwork while at the same time increasing understanding of the history of the Brodsworth Area. To support this aim the Group aims to ensure that appropriate high quality training in archaeological field techniques is provided to all participants. The Group also aims to encourage the use of archaeology as a vehicle to deliver training in other skills.
