SharedPast were recently involved with the Whittington Castle Preservation Trust and the University of Chester’s ‘Digital on Tour’ team for a day at the castle. More can be found about the project here. The University have now released their video from the day which describes what the day and the project was all about.
It’s getting close to that time of year where we get busy preparing for and taking part in the latest Time Team digs. We all have our individual roles to play, but what makes Time Team so special is the team spirit that exists when everyone works together towards a common goal.
You may hear other members of the team saying the same, but it’s very true that you’re often so engrossed in doing what you are there for, that you’ve no idea what goes on elsewhere. We all look forward to the programme to see just what it was all about!
Anyway, preparations are well underway and we’re looking forward to meeting some old friends again.

Many thanks to all who attended the recent Masterclass hosted at Epiacum Roman Fort. We were blessed with possibly the hottest weather we’ve ever experienced on a Masterclass, the waterproofs remained in the rucksack at all times!
We hope you all enjoyed the experience and had both a fun and informative weekend. We’d like to thank everyone at Epiacum Heritage for all their hard work in organising and making the event work so well.
As a result of late cancellations, there are now two places available on the Landscape Masterclass this coming weekend (12th – 14th August 2022)
Given how close we are to the event, you’ll need to act fast and as ever, it’s first come, first served.
We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Cotswold Outdoor.
Any group working with us can benefit from discounted prices.
Brands include Cotswold Outdoor, Snow & Rock and runnersneed.
