The Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project is a long-term research project investigating and promoting the heritage of Sherwood Forest through public involvement in archaeology.
Sherwood Forest is a place of myths and legends known throughout the world as the home of Robin Hood.
The Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project combines the highest quality research with public engagement, and enables people from all walks of life to become involved in an amazing long-term archaeology research project.
Since 2013 the Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project has provided FREE Community Archaeology opportunities for different groups and individuals to experience their Local Heritage together.
The Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project engages people from any background and from all walks of life and ages; including adults with learning difficulties, young people, as well as those currently out of work desiring transferable skills, students needing experience, and volunteers, in this landscape of legends and folklore, all overseen by professional archaeologists.
Community Archaeology can be a great source of social good as well as education. The project combines community archaeology, research and outreach work- that promotes the archaeology, history and heritage of the wider Sherwood Forest, its landscape and people. This research is intrinsically linked to raising the profile and value of the wider Sherwood Forest area.
