Revealing Oldknow's Legacy Introductory Course in Archaeology: This session forms part of Revealing Oldknow's Legacy's free introductory course in archaeology. This is one of three practical sessions leading up to a week-long community dig at which we will be excavating at the site of Industrialist entrepreneur Samuel Oldknow's lime kilns, dating from the 19th century. There are also four 'background sessions' prior to the practical sessions, looking at the industrial heritage of our region and at how to carry out background research before a dig.
Although this session forms part of a larger course, you are welcome to attend this session as a stand-alone event.
Individuals who attend all sessions will receive a certificate of attendance from the University of Salford. In addition, these sessions can be used toward the BAJR Archaeology Skills Passport, a pathway into a career in archaeology.
