TV Archaeologist Julian Richards asks ‘What’s Under Your Feet?’ at Creswell Crags

Julian Richards, one of Britain’s leading lights in archaeology, is looking forward to his return to Creswell as part of Limestone Journeys celebrating the Festival of British Archaeology. His talk, ‘What’s Under Your Feet?’, will take place on Saturday 28th July.

Julian will be talking about his current work with 43 schools around the country on his ‘What’s Under Your School?’ project.

“Our aim is to encourage children to look at their surroundings, which often have a lot of history but go unnoticed. There are clues everywhere about the past. We have worked with over 1000 children so far, so hopefully some of them will take an interest in archaeology when they grow up.”

Pub Dig

Julian will also bring his expertise to an archaeological dig at the Elm Tree Inn, Elmton. Julian’s talk will take place on Saturday 28th July from 2:30pm – 4pm at Creswell Crags. The dig will take place on Saturday at the Elm Tree Inn, Elmton, from 12pm – 4pm. There will be a BBQ of the Elm Tree’s award winning food afterwards. There will also be a history and archaeology exhibition in St. Peter’s Church held by the local history group. The dig and exhibition continue on Sunday 29th July from 12pm – 4pm.

Local Walks

Also during this weekend of events celebrating the Festival of British Archaeology, join Limestone Journeys for two wonderful walks in the local landscape.

‘Three Vales Walks’ – a rare opportunity to explore the archaeology of three limestone vales, led by Ian Wall, the Director of Creswell Crags. This stunning walk at 11am on 27th July starts at Creswell Crags and also takes in Markland Grips and Burnhill Grips.

‘Ancient Settings and New Discoveries’ – a guided walk around the picturesque village of Elmton starts at 1.30pm from the Elm Tree Inn.

All events are free (food will be on sale at the BBQ), but booking is essential for the walks and Julian Richards’ talk. Please call 01909 720378.
