BCAP Annual General Meeting - Arnos Manor Hotel

All BCAP members are very welcome to attend. It is an important event that affects the way we work during the year ahead, so please come along if you can.

We will also be voting for various committee posts, and nominations for these posts are welcomed. If you are interested in finding out about how to become more actively involved in BCAP, please let us know as we have a variety of other vacancies. Whatever your interests or skills, you can certainly contribute - even if only occasionally.

Tuesday 13th May - 7:00pm

Exploring St Anne's Wood

Meet at Newbridge Road entrance (opposite St Anne's Park, where there is ample parking for anyone arriving by car)

Now the evenings are getting longer we thought it a good idea to get outdoors and explore. So the next BCAP event will be a walk in St Anne's Woods to explore in general and try to locate Cruses Cottage in particular. Background research and historic map information will be very useful, so everyone is invited to see what information they can bring to this event. The more information we have, the better, so please bring this with you when you come.

If it's raining, and the walk is not possible, then we'll meet at the Langton Court Hotel and share and discuss our research. In any event, it's very likely we'll conclude the evening with a beer there..

Archaeology Begins at Home

Even new houses sit on old ground, and the soil soaks archaeology up like a sponge - whether you're weeding the garden or digging foundations for a patio, you never know what you'll find.

We welcome volunteers with an interest in anything from digging, to conserving or cataloging finds; and from researching history, to report-writing or multi-media management. Training available.
