Sherwood Forest Archaeological Training Field School 2017
at King John’s Palace in Sherwood Forest
If you are coming to our field school and you are new to Sherwood Forest why not stay a while and have a look at some of the other things there are to do in this landscape of legends…
During the course of the Field School there will be an opportunity for an evening tour of the Sherwood Forest National Nature Reserve
King Clipstone is approximately 3 miles from the Sherwood Forest National Reserve, home of the world famous Major Oak.
This 1,000 year old ancient veteran oak is perhaps the most famous tree in England and is reputed to be the legendary hideaway of Robin Hood.
During the course of the field School we can take you on a guided tour of the nature reserve and show you some of the other majestic veteran oak trees, and take you on a journey through the landscape and archaeology of this legendary forest.
This is a great opportunity to wander through Sherwood Forest and learn from the people who know its history and heritage.
The tour will cost an extra £7 per person and will run dependant on demand.
