Since 2013 the Rothwell Charnel Chapel Project team have been running public open days in Holy Trinity Church. Our open days provide an opportunity to share our research with the public as well as to seek feedback on work in progress.
Our latest open day was on 6th August 2016. Ossuary tours took place throughout the day, and visitors were also able to find out a bit more about human osteology from current University of Sheffield students. Greer Dewdney, our Project Intern for six months during 2015-16 led teams to undertake a surface survey of the cemetery, looking for disturbed residual objects that might help reveal the long history of human activity around Holy Trinity Church.
Our next open day will be in Summer 2017. Everyone is welcome!
