Volunteers are being sought to join the team at a prehistoric/Roman village near Snape.

Hands on Heritage runs a programme of spring and summer workshops for schools and youth groups.

Anyone with skills, or a willingness to pick up training in outdoor cooking, green woodworking, weaving, fire-lighting, arts and crafts or metalworking, can attend a taster day, including some of the workshops run for schools and a ‘prehistoric lunch’, from 11am-3pm on Saturday, April 22.

The settlement is located on Forestry Commission land near Snape, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The site has also provided respite breaks for organisations like Suffolk Family Carers.

The work relies on volunteers, managed by Duncan Allan, an outreach officer from Suffolk Archaeology.
