The Drs Parker Heath are currently very busy organising this year’s archaeological investigations close to Arbor Low and Gib Hill. The licenses from English Heritage have arrived, permissions from landowners have been given, but most excitingly local schools are beginning to sign up to come and have a tour around the ancient monuments, visit the dig site and get their hands dirty!
So far we have heard from Monyash Primary School, Curbar Primary School, and Harpur Hill Primary School, and rumour has it that some of the Outdoor Education pupils from Buxton College may be showing their faces…
Any teachers out there who may want their class to take part should contact us as soon as possible on firstname.lastname@example.org. Hurry! There are only 3 or 4 slots left available.
For more information on the project in general see www.arborlowenvironsproject.org
