Festival of Archaeology at Greys Court, 15 to 21 July

Whether you’re an archaeological amateur or the next Indiana Jones, join us to discover more about Greys Court.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

This summer, Greys Court is taking part in the Festival of Archaeology, the biggest archaeological celebration in the UK, organised by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA).

We will be looking to investigate Greys Court’s lost gatehouse. We believe this would have provided access to the outer courtyard of the Tudor house. We’ll also take a look at the curtain wall which would have formed the boundary of the courtyard. We hope to learn more about what they were made of, if they were decorated, and even how high they were. Did they have any defensive use or purpose or were they just for show, or perhaps even a domestic use.
