Welcome to The Guild of Scholars of the City of London

Archaeology Week - Sunday  16th July 2006

Search Tower Beach - a rare opportunity to descend and search
Visit Billingsgate Roman house and baths not on general public view

Arrangements are being made for an exclusive day that will be interesting to all. We hope that we might also generate some longer-lasting interest in Archaeology for some.

The finer points of the programme and visits are still being negotiated

The expected programme for the day – Sunday 16th July  - is :
 11:00 Visit displays of archaeological finds on the green above Tower Beach
 12:00 Descend to the beach at low tide to search for ‘finds’ and have them evaluated
 13:30 Lunch own arrangements or  Pizza Express
 14:30 Visit to the Billingsgate Roman house and baths first tour
 15:45 Visit to the Billingsgate Roman house and baths second tour
  these tours are limited to 30 visitors each

We hope to run a competition for the younger visitors.
Open to Guild members and families,  and to pupils at the City Schools and their families

We are making a nominal charge of £8  per adult and £4 for those 25 years and under.  
This is to pay for the Billingsgate entry (there is no charge for the Tower Beach access) plus the competition prize(s),  and a contribution to training and equipping a few that might want to acquire further archaeological expertise.

Please register your interest on the attached form as soon as possible. Booking form for the Archaelogical Dig
We are sure that the limited number of places will be taken up quickly.
We will send further details before the event to those that have registered.

Please use the following form to make payment and send to The Clerk, Guild of Scholars, 39 Brancaster Lane, Purley, Surrey, CR8 1HJ
