Carved stone investigations in West Yorkshire
A team of consultants have been selected to lead on the 'Prehistoric Carved Rocks' project on Rombalds Moor, the moorland between Ilkley and Keighley in West Yorkshire (England). In addition to written records this involves photographing the rocks to create 3D images through photogrammetry. Their experience in conducting a similar project covering Northumbria and Durham will prove a real asset in establishing a unique record that will provide the basis for future interpretation and management.
The project will be launched in Ilkley on Saturday 6th November where there will be an opportunity to learn more about the project and register your interest in being involved. Over the coming months a series of training sessions covering surveying, recording and photographic techniques will be organised for community volunteers to learn how best they can help undertake the work over the next three years. The project will also aim to ensure that the skills and knowledge gained during this time will then allow the work to continue and develop after the project has come to an end.
If you wish to register interest in either of these projects please contact Gavin Edwards, Community Archaeologist: Gavin.Edwards@pennineprospects.co.uk
