Skipton: The Long Preston Big Dig – community archaeology in action
02/Nov/2017 @ 19:30 - 21:00£3.00
A talk by Dr David Johnson
A community-focussed Big Dig Project was undertaken in Long Preston in 2015/16 in the hope of discovering more about the village’s history; taking the story further back in time than was already known. A total of 38 one metre square test pits were dug across the village and the results have enabled a detailed picture to be drawn up.
Dr David Johnson is an independent researcher, a trustee/director of the Yorkshire Dales Landscape Research Trust and was Chairman of Ingleborough Archaeology Group for many years.
