2010-04-24 CBA Yorkshire Visit to Creswell Crags

The caves in the limestone gorge at Creswell Crags in Nottinghamshire were inhabited during the
last ice age between 50,000 and 10,000 years ago. Much work has been done in recent years to
improve understanding of this nationally important archaeological site culminating in the summer
of 2009 with the opening of a new £7million museum and visitor centre. The visit offers an
opportunity for CBA Yorkshire members to learn at first hand about the discoveries that have
been made at Creswell and about the future plans of the Creswell Heritage Trust.

Note that the visit is limited to a maximum of 35 participants and we have now achieved that number.
