If you missed the Roots of Iron Heritage Skills Open Day on July 9th then have a look at this brilliant little video and catch up with some fabulous demonstrations with commentary from the archaeology students who braved the torrential rain to set up a bloomery forge in the chapel gardens. From bronze and copper work to flint-napping and pottery the Iron Age way, it’s a joy to watch. Watch out also for the excellent camera work and interviewing skills of the youngest member of our film crew.

And this wraps up a wonderful two year project funded by the National Lottery ( Heritage Lottery Young Roots ). The project involved 777 young people aged 11 – 25 and many more besides. Many, many thanks to anyone who has ever bought a lottery ticket! We’re all winners.
But – We will be Lighting Up the Hill again on Tuesday 15th November 2016, leaving the chapel at 5pm to walk through the woods and up the hill by lamplight. Look out for details of additional community workshops and activities throughout October. And see you there .
