A Trench by Trench Photographic Record Of The 2018 Archaeological Excavation by Paul Rowland

During the months of September and October 2018 I had the great pleasure to take part as a volunteer in the nine week Sheffield Castle archaeological excavation carried out by Wessex Archaeology North, based in Sheffield.

During my time on site as a volunteer I was allowed to take photographs of the excavation and the volunteers at work. By the end of the dig I had taken over 3,000 photographs which documents the progress of the archaeological excavation trench by trench. Within the pages of my book is a very small selection of the photos that I took.

I hope that these photographs will be a useful resource for anyone interested in Sheffield’s history and archaeology and also a visual record of the 2018 Sheffield Castle archaeological excavation.

The book is 8″ wide x 10″ high x 1.25″ thick. It contains 454 pages with over 500 colour photographs and is available as a Hardback book here  and also as a Softback book here.
