21nov8:00 pmWhat did we find at Arney Fort?


Event Details

Two months ago we carried out an
exciting community dig on Arney Fort led by Northern Archaeology Consultancy
(NAC). Fifty local hard working volunteers, one hundred and twenty school
children and many others from the area took part. But what was found at the
fort along the Arney River at Clontymullan? Who built it and when? What did it
look like?

To find out the answers to these
and other questions you are invited to a community feedback event with Dr
Paul Logue (Historic Environment Division) and Jonathan Barkley (NAC) who will
present their interpretation of the finds on
Thursday 21st November
at 8.00pm in Arney Hall

It will be a great evening with no
shortage of opinions and suggestions from the floor if previous community
archaeology evenings are anything to go by. The event will also be an
opportunity to thank our volunteers, landowners and others who made the dig
such a success. The event is free and refreshments will be provided.

ALSO PLEASE NOTE: The date for
Marions Maxwell’s talk on Nixon Hall which was scheduled for 12th
December has been changed due to the general election. It will now be held on
Thursday 23rd January 2020. Further details to follow.
