Woolsthorpe Manor will hold the Festival of Archaeology as a part of several National Trust events across Lincolnshire.

The festival will take place from Saturday July 16 until Monday July 18 from 11am until 5pm.

The team at Woolsthorpe are working with members of the South Witham Archaeology group to undertake a geophysical survey of the field next to the Manor, which is thought to be the location of Isaac Newton’s mother’s house.
