Budding archaeologists are contributing to a dig in Edwinstowe which its organisers hope will prove people lived in the village in the seventh century.

Residents are taking part not only by lending manual labour to the project, but also by allowing volunteers to excavate their gardens.

Over 100 individual volunteers and villagers have signed up to take part over 12 days in archaeological excavation to celebrate the Festival of British Archaeology.
