Reading the archaeological landscape – Saturday 12 March

Have you ever walked through a landscape and seen strange lumps and bumps or the remnants of long-forgotten ruined stonework? The countryside is one giant archaeological site and these features are the ‘fingerprints’ of the generations of people who have lived and worked in it for thousands of years. Join us to learn the basics of reading and recording the historic landscape with archaeologist Jim Brightman of Solstice Heritage. After an indoor introductory session, we’ll head out to put these skills into practice.

Please bring lunch, and suitable outdoor clothing and footwear. The session will be suitable for adults and young people over the age of 14, though we ask that 14–18 year olds be accompanied by an adult.
