The Lake District unearthed
The stage is set for a third sell-out archaeology conference to see how thousands of years of the Lake District's (England) rich history are being unravelled. Looking at recent fieldwork and conservation, the Lake District National Park Authority-organised event at The Lakes School, Windermere, has attracted nationally-renowned experts to take the platform. The LDNPA has been at the helm of archaeological investigation and conservation, and, for the third time, will stage a conference to share information about its own projects, as well as putting other key schemes under the spotlight.
"Topics range widely in period and scope," said LDNPA archaeologist Eleanor Kingston. "We'll be investigating prehistoric rock art, the Neolithic period in the central fells, the development of villas in the landscape and the impact of slate working in the Lake District." The work of individuals, local groups, universities and org-anisations such as the National Trust and English Heritage will be explored during the day.
The Archaeology in the Lake District, Recent Fieldwork and Conservation Conference is being held at The Lakes School, Windermere, on Saturday, November 27, starting at 10am. Early booking is essential to avoid disappointment. To book, contact the Lake District National Park Auth-ority at: Murley Moss, Oxenholme Road, Kendal LA9 7RL; email: firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01539 724555.
