In partnership with the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust, Trent & Peak Archaeology are launching a  new community archaeology project based at the Attenborough Nature Reserve. Working under  professional guidance, volunteer ‘explorers’ will track down ‘lost’ artefacts that were extracted  from the reserve during quarrying activity over the last century and are now dispersed in  different museums and collections. By creating a photographic catalogue and working with maps  and records, they will weave the artefacts into an accessible narrative detailing Attenborough’s  past that will be presented in an exhibition as part of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s 50 year  celebrations. For more information about the project and who to contact to get involved, check out their website.
