Time is running out to book your place for the archaeology day school being held in Preston. The event promises to be a fascinating insight into Lancashire’s ancient past.
It’s being held at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) on Saturday 4 May and is hosted by Lancashire County Council’s Archaeology Service and UCLan’s School of Forensic and Investigative Sciences.
Several speakers will be sharing their knowledge on subjects ranging from prehistoric caves and enclosures, medieval ecclesiastical remains, industrial archaeology, World War I practice trenches and the production of medieval floor and roof tiles.
Amongst the guest speakers will be Rick Petersen (UCLan archaeology course leader), Stephen Rowland (Oxford Archaeology North), Ian Miller (Oxford Archaeology North) and Nigel Neil (Neil Archaeological Services).
Archaeology special advisor at Lancashire County Council Peter Iles, said: “This day will be a real treat for anyone interested in the archaeology of Lancashire – the day covers a wide range of topics and periods and you won’t have to be an expert to enjoy it.”
Rick Peterson commented: “We’re really excited to once again be taking part in this year’s Lancashire Archaeology Day School, where we’ll have the chance to tell people the results of our recent research.”
