Hands on History Barnsley – Test Pits Day 1 – the video

Here is a video of the first test pit of Hands on History Barnsley being dug. Dan Jarvis came to help out dig the first turf before catching the train to Westminster. Volunteers then excavated two test pits at New Lodge Crescent, finding pottery, slag and other artefacts. The test pits were the first in two weeks of excavations in Athersley and New Lodge during September 2013.
