A programme of ten archaeology workshops and field visits were organised with the help and support of qualified archaeologists within the Society. The workshops were held at the County Museum in Aylesbury, with field visits to Stoke Mandeville, Bradenham and the museum's Resource Centre at Halton.
The workshops aimed to give non-professionals who had an interest and enthusiasm for archaeology a ‘starter pack’ of knowledge and skills that would enable them to participate actively in archaeological investigations. The programme concentrated on both practical skills and methods of recording and analysis.
All sessions were interactive, with opportunities for discussion and participation.
Twenty-two people signed up for the workshops series. After its final session 28 people joined the new Active Archaeology Group.
