We have a team from Durham University on site between 4th and 16 July carrying out excavation outside Mother Grundy’s Parlour. They will be providing free public tours of the excavation site on Saturday 9 July at 12 noon and 3pm, and a talk on their findings at 1.30pm (tickets £3), bookable on 01909 720378.
You’ll see that we also have Sheffield University coming on Saturday 16 July and this Impact Event is an opportunity to hear from them about new techniques and proposals.
Creswell Crags celebrates the Festival of British Archaeology this year on Saturday 23 July, with our ‘Ice Age Survival’ day – John Lord will be demonstrating flint knapping, and we will also be hosting Paul Preston (Lithoscapes) who will be running a flint identification drop-in workshop, and there will be a chance to try your hand at outdoors survival skills (£5 charge for event).
Finally, we are running a session ’Wildflowers of the Limestone gorge’ with Debbie Alston of Derbyshire Wildlife Trust on Tuesday 26 July, 2pm – 4pm (£4 charge – please book ahead).
