Archaeological Surveying at Marks Hall

Excavation & surveying work under way at Marks Hall near Coggeshall, along with a guided tour for interested locals.

Welcome to the Colchester Archaeological Group

We have been working since 1955 to bring together the contribution volunteers can make to local archaeological knowledge and discovery.

The Group organizes a series of archaeological digs throughout the year to help members develop and practice their skills in excavation.

There is also an annual series of lectures during the winter months, study visits and other fieldwork designed to promote knowledge and interest in archaeology.

A great deal of what has been learnt by the group over the years is recorded here to help you find out more about your area.

Why not join us and discover more.
