Bronze and Iron Age Heritage Project
We have been fortunate to receive a grant from Heritage Lottery to fund our next project.
The project will focus on three main strands:
• The restoration of the Bronze Age Bowl Barrow, bringing it back to its former glory in the landscape, and raising awareness of its historical and cultural significance.
• Building a Community Bronze Age Boat, with the assistance of volunteers from the community and with specialist advice, using wherever possible, ancient skills and tools.
• Building a typical Iron Age farm settlement, with the assistance of community volunteers, to be a focal point for a ‘Living History Experience’. Activities for schools and the local community will include re-enactments, “day in the life of”, and traditional crafts such as weaving, pottery, jewellery, metal, and wood working etc.
