Visit to the special exhibition - Ötzi 20

I am very sorry to say that, having reckoned up the costs for this trip, it is too expensive to be viable. This is in part due to the fact that the only time that I would be free to run the trip is a holiday weekend in Germany, so that prices for both coach and hotels are higher than normal.

Best regards,

EMAS Field Trip

EMAS FIELD TRIP TO DEDDINGTON CASTLE, MINSTER LOVELL MANOR, LEIGH COURT BARN & PERSHORE ABBEY
Saturday, 10th September, 2011

David Beard will lead a field trip to Deddington Castle and Minster Lovell Manor House in Oxfordshire as well as Leigh Court Barn and Pershore Abbey in Worcestershire.

Deddington was a thriving medieval market town as early as the 11th century which made it a good location for a Norman castle founded c.1100. As well as the presence of extensive earthworks, excavation last century showed evidence of a curtain wall, small keep, hall and chapel in a polygonal inner bailey.
