Rock Art event in England
Archaeology enthusiasts from across the north rolled up for a sell-out conference to experience recording rock and the Lake Districtís (England) rich history. The gathering, exploring thousands of years of the areaís diverse past, brought 200 enthusiasts to Windermere for a Lake District National Park Authority organised exploration.
With a unique combination of spectacular natural landforms, adapted by passing centuries of residents, the authority has been at the helm of archaeological investigation and conservation in the Lake District. Authority archaeologist Eleanor Kingston said: "We had excellent, nationally-renowned speakers, covering topics which ranged widely in period and scope. People arrived to hear about prehistoric rock art, the Neolithic period in the central fells, the development of villas in the landscape and the impact of slate working." The date, November 26, has been set for a similar event next year.
