Featured Websites.

The WAG website is featuring two useful websites on the "Home" page, I hope that people find these of use in uncovering more about their local history or by adding to it. Below are two useful and free to use websites, I hope that they are of use to everyone.

Portable Antiquities Scheme.

A useful website for recording finds and we encourage anyone who has a found historical items outside of our fieldwalking exercises to have them recorded on the PAS.

The Portable Antiquities Scheme is a voluntary scheme to record archaeological objects found by members of the public in England and Wales. Every year many thousands of objects are discovered, many of these by metal-detector users, but also by people whilst out walking, gardening or going about their daily work. Such discoveries offer an important source for understanding our past. Since 1997 the Portable Antiquities Scheme Finds Liaison Offiicers have examined over 100,000 objects, many of which would have otherwise gone unrecorded.

English Heritage's 'Pastscape'.

If you've ever wanted to learn more about your local history, or that of a site of interest, but didn't know where to start, then this site can help. English Heritage is running a site called ' Pastscape'...

"Welcome to PastScape, a new online resource developed by English Heritage's National Monuments Record (NMR), which provides an easy-to-use way to find information about many of England's ancient and historical sites, buildings and monuments. The information within PastScape is taken directly from the NMR's national historic environment database containing nearly 400,000 records on the archaeology and buildings of England and its territorial waters. These records contain descriptions of any interesting archaeological details, pictures (where available), and links to maps and aerial photographs on other websites. The site is free to use and there is no need to register."

About Us.

The Washingborough Archaeology Group (WAG) was launched in 1992 by North Kesteven District Council to enable members of the community to discover their rich archaeological heritage. The group has focused primarily on field walking and has walked about two-thirds of the available land in the village. A number of previously unknown sites of historic and prehistoric activity have been found and a display of finds made so far can be seen in Washingborough Community Centre.

WAG comprises volunteers not just from Washingborough itself, but the Lincolnshire area and neighbouring counties in general. E-mail wagcontact@btinternet.com or use our forum for details if you are interested in finding out more. Don't worry if you don't have any experience; support and field training will be provided by a small team of professional and amateur archaeologists. Please do feel free to leave comments in our Forum/Guestbook.
