ASHBOURNE’S amateur archaeologists are being invited to learn more about recent discoveries in their area’s history.
The Archaeology Day 2014 will include presentations on medieval Derby, a review of recently scheduled ancient monuments, managing heritage on the eastern moors, ceramic production, the story of the Butterley gangroad project and 300 years of coal mining above Buxton.
Ken Smith from the Peak National Park said: “This is a great opportunity for Derbyshire and Peak District residents to catch up with the work of archaeologists in their area.
“Often their work with volunteers from local historical and archaeological groups produces some of the most exceptional results, and people who’ve been involved are naturally interested in hearing more about them.”
“The event has sold out for the past years.”
Tickets cost £12, and the event will take place from 9.15am until 5.15pm on Saturday, January 11 at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre.
