Archaeology in the Lake District 2017

The Lake District National Park Authority arranges the Lake District Annual Archaeology Conference to showcase the research that takes place within this rich cultural landscape, which was inscribed as a World Heritage Site in July 2017. This year the conference will provide an opportunity to learn about recent projects carried out by universities, organisations and those undertaken in partnership with local communities and volunteers within the National Park. One of the sessions will be about the Cunsey Forge excavations. There will also be a celebration of John Hodgson’s 24 years service for the National Park Authority following his retirement at the end of July.

Location: The Theatre by the Lake, Keswick. Tickets cost £15.00 (with tea and coffee) and should be booked before Thursday 5 October 2017.
