Bogs, marshes, swamps, and fens. Did you know that ancient wetlands were once rich environments for people to live in?

Together with Dig Ventures, we’re planning a real-life fieldwork mission to reveal an ancient wetland teeming with evidence of the humans who lived along the beautiful River Skerne in County Durham many thousands of years ago.

But first, we need YOU to help us choose where to dig!

We’re looking for a team of curious people who can get ‘bogged down’ with us online, and help us identify a series of wetland hotspots.

Taking place entirely online, we’ll show you how to use borehole data held by the British Geological Survey to flag potential sites.

No previous experience is necessary, and we promise we won’t ‘bore’ you! To take part all you need is:

🌐 internet connection
⏰ some spare hours between Tue 23 Feb – Tue 02 Mar
🤔 a pinch of curiosity about boreholes

In short, you’ll find out how we research our sites before we go out on fieldwork, learn about borehole data, and help us choose where to dig.

Some of you will even have the chance to join us on our fieldwork mission if and when it’s safe to do so. What could be more exciting than that?!

The importance of Bees

Bees are disappearing globally at an alarming rate due to pesticides, parasites, disease and habitat loss. If these little insects that help provide so much of the food we eat were to vanish, what would we do without them?
