The Mystery of the Factory in the Woods

An Audio Adventure & Guided Walk in Ecclesall Woods.

Young people and archaeology students have been working with Grow theatre and SCC to put together the Audio Adventure. Embark on an amazing audio adventure through time, take a guided walk to discover stories of Ecclesall Woods and learn how archaeology can teach us how to understand the past: songs, stories and incredible facts for all the family!

Archaeology in the City put on a couple of thoroughly enjoyable days!

This two-day festival was a celebration of local research and local heritage and offered the public an opportunity to join in with some free hands-on activities, demonstrations and talks, held in and around the Discovery Centre at Ecclesall Woods. Both days were a great success with around 1200 visitors joining us over the two days. Thanks to both the public and all the volunteers (and the sunshine) for making this such a wonderful two days!

Living History in Ecclesall Woods

We have made a video of the Woods through our sister project – Ecclesall Wood Land  – also funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. Ecclesall Woods is South Yorkshire’s largest Ancient Woodland, and this video shows us how people have used the woods over the centuries, and how they are using it now. Enjoy! If you want to find out more, come and join us on the Wilderness Skills Course next week!
