Thu 6 April 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Maureen Kilpatrick, GUARD Archaeology

In our final lecture of the programme, Dr. Maureen Kilpatrick of Guard Archaeology will tell us about the amazing archaeological finds in advance of the Eden Woods housing development in Guardbridge. Not to be missed for all those who live in the area.

Between 2019 and 2021 GUARD Archaeology excavated an Iron Age fort overlooking Guardbridge. The excavations revealed the deep ditches defining the fort and many other features beyond. Traces of a palaeolithic site, a Neolithic long house, a large timber circle, numerous Bronze Age hut circles and a large Iron Age roundhouse. Artefacts included several polished stone axes, evidence of metal working and a significant prehistoric pottery assemblage.
