Members: if you’re interested in taking part in the excavation at Ivy Hall this summer (10-11th August), please let Jan know by the end of June.
That is, if Spring ever arrives for real! This is a busy week for LAS: Tuesday and Wednesday, there is a planned surveying session at Ivy Hall, Raisbeck. The times are 10-4: and please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you intend to come. This is somewhat weather dependent, so please check for updates. On Thursday (March 21st), Barbara Blatchford will be talking about the landscape survey of Longsleddale at 7.30 in the Market Hall, Orton. Next week, there will be an evening with Annie (March 25th at 7.30 pm).
Looking a little further ahead, the AGM will take place on April 11th. Please come along: there will be tea and cakes, and you will have an opportunity to get more involved in the group.

Low Borrowbridge Open Day
Last year’s Open Day for the Low Borrowbridge excavation was a massively successful event. LAS members are working away at the Roman fort, and the public is invited to visit on August 10th, from 1pm to 7pm. See the announcement on the Documents page.
Buried charcoal can be quite revealing.
Check out the radiocarbon report, on the reports and documents pages, to find out what we established from the charcoal found on the 2011 Low Borrowbridge excavation.
