Event description

Description

Landscapes have stories to tell. To explore how war left a legacy in the landscape the focus of this day's activities is Cleenish Island in County Fermanagh.

The day will include a field trip to the island to study some of the buildings specifically created to house returning servicemen and to encourage them to farm after the war. Local experts from the Cleenish Island Project along with researchers from the Living Legacies 1914-18 Engagement Centre who specialise in historical and archaeological landscapes will guide the visit.

As well as the site-visits on Cleenish Island, the day will also include presentations and discussions on WW1 archaeology and mapping, and a visit to the newly refurbished Enniskillen Museum where we shall have the opportunity to view the brilliant WW1 exhibit.
