Magnetic Observatory Community Dig

Greenwich Park Revealed is a 4-year £8million project supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund and National Lottery Community Fund to protect, restore and reveal the historic landscape of this World Heritage Site. 

As part of the project Community Archaeologist Andrew Mayfield organised a dig during May 2022, to search for clues to Greenwich Park's former magnetic observatory. Andrew shares his dig diary as it happened, detailing what they found and what it tells us about the park's past. See his blog here.
