The Dean Archaeological Group (or DAG as we are commonly known) encourages and promotes the understanding of archaeology in the Forest of Dean and neighbouring areas.

Our aim is to practice field archaeology and we take every opportunity to research, survey, excavate and record sites. DAG is an amateur organisation that aspires to meet professional standards across all of its activities but that does not mean that you need an archaeological background to join us. All you require is enthusiasm and a desire to learn about archaeology: in or out of the trenches!

We are a friendly and informal group so if you want to find out more take a closer look at our website, or come along to one of our meetings at the Fountain Inn, Parkend, Forest of Dean. We meet at 8pm on the last Thursday of each month (except December) and you are guaranteed a warm welcome.

Once again DAG meetings have been temporarily suspended due to lack of a venue.

We will resume our monthly meetings as soon as a new meeting place can be found.

If anyone knows of a potential meeting place please contact Phil.
