Ar­chae­ol­ogy project in the spot­light

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A HIS­TORY Live event tak­ing place this evening (Wed­nes­day, March 1) will be all about a fas­ci­nat­ing com­mu­nity ar­chae­ol­ogy project.

The speak­ers at the event, held at Hollinsclough Chapel Hall, are El­speth Walker, Mar­garet Black and Eric Wood from the Tudor Farm­ing In­ter­pre­ta­tion Group.

They will be talk­ing about the ar­chae­ol­ogy project at Un­der Whi­tle, Sheen, near Long­nor, which in­volves school chil­dren, vol­un­teers and com­mu­nity groups work­ing with pro­fes­sion­als to dis­cover more about the peo­ple who lived in the beau­ti­ful Up­per Dove Val­ley around Un­der Whi­tle Farm.

Their work re­vealed two house plat­forms, prob­a­bly me­dieval, and ridge and fur­row farm­ing, and El­speth also dis­cov­ered a land dispute be­tween the Horobin fam­ily go­ing back to 1537 in Tudor times. ‘Peel­ing Back the lay­ers: A Com­mu­nity Ar­chae­ol­ogy Project at Un­der Whi­tle, Sheen’ will be pre­sented to­day, (Wed­nes­day, March 1) at 7.30pm. Ev­ery­one is very wel­come to at­tend.
