Feast in the Forest Meets Q Pitting!

The team were enjoying a day up at Ecclesall Woods Discovery Centre last Sunday at the fantastic Feast in the Forest event. Along side some incredibly scrumptious local produce stalls, fascinating craft stalls, live music and much much ‘s’more’… excuse the pun but there was even a s’more camp fire, a delicious addition to the event, Archaeology in the City were there experimenting with Q-pits again and getting the public involved with learning about these post medieval white coal production kilns. Not only was this a fun way to get the public involved in¬†experimental archaeology, it also counts towards furthering our understanding of this industrial process!11692707_1674966736093522_4356366765700095513_n



This is a yearly event so if you missed Feast in the Forest this be sure to come along next year!
