A 17th season of work on the scheduled ancient monument, home of a series of nationally important figures beginning in the Wars of the Roses and then a Tudor royal palace, will aim to locate the moated inner gatehouse. With previous work about to be published in a major monograph, the dig will begin to examine higher status parts of the palace and we welcome experienced and novice diggers for all or just part of the excavation which is in public parkland. (Applications for society membership must be received by 4th July.)
