Prehistoric Bowland

The Lord of Bowland's 12th Annual Lecture

  • Delivered by Dr Rick Peterson – Reader in Archaeology, University of Central Lancashire – Tues 3rd Oct, 7.30pm–9pm, Tithe Barn, Browsholme Hall

Since 2011, the University of Central Lancashire has been excavating newly discovered prehistoric sites around New Laund Hill in Whitewell. With the final season of excavation completed in 2021, we are now starting to see how this landscape was used from the Late Mesolithic (around 7000 years ago) until the Middle Iron Age (around 2500 years ago).

This lecture will review the results from the project and include recent work such as the discovery of a whole new Middle Iron Age settlement site and a much more detailed understanding of the worked stone tool evidence from the Mesolithic and Neolithic periods.

Free entry, but donations welcomed in support of local charities, Slaidburn Archive and Champion Bowland.

All under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

Pre-booking essential. For further details, and to book a place, please email sandra.silk@lancashire.gov.uk or phone 07973 923142.
