East Anglia is an area rich in archaeology and historical finds with Sutton Hoo in Suffolk or Seahenge at Holme-next-the-Sea in Norfolk.
Hoards of buried treasure were discovered at Hoxne and Snettisham.
Now a new community dig is underway in the grounds of Clare Castle near Sudbury in Suffolk to find out more about the historical site and what went on there hundreds of years ago.
It's part of a £1.5 million Heritage Lottery grant.

Ancient bones that that were recovered by an Essex Police Crime Scene Investigator date back to Roman Times.
The mystery was solved after the bones were discovered by builders working on a housing development on Debden Road in Saffron Walden.
It soon became clear they were human bones but no-one knew how old they were.
So CSI Hilary Miller took up the case and sent photos to experts at Dundee University.
"The bones in the images are human in origin and include a right legbone and part of the left femur lying in anatomical position which would be consistent with a previously undisturbed burial”.
The final step in solving the mystery saw the bones being examined by an archaeology expert from Essex County Council, who confirmed that the bones were human, ‘beyond living memory’.
As Roman and late Iron Age artefacts have previously been found on the opposite side of Debden Road, as well as the condition of the bones, it is thought that the remains may date back to Roman times.
They've now gone on display at Saffron Walden Museum.
