Were you a Winchester Digger?

In the 1960’s and 1970’s Winchester was alive with excavations. Were you one of the diggers? Or were you a host family? We are now attempting to get back in touch with as many people from the excavations as possible and need your help. If you were there or know someone who was please contact us using the email address above.
