  • IAS: Dawn Rose, the return of a Cuckoo
    19:30 -21:00
    13/11/2020

    John Lower, from the Chesterfield Canal Trust will describe a “living archaeology” project re-creating a 70 foot horse-drawn, sail-driven narrowboat to a design last built in the 1930s  and unique to the Chesterfield canal. Volunteers using only contemporary hand tools and seven tons of oak and larch put in four years of hard work. This is the story from the origin of the project through to the adventures of the vessel so far.

    Every year in Derbyshire, hundreds of archaeological small finds are discovered by members of the public and reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme for investigation and recording. This talk will present a selection of the most interesting, unusual, and surprising objects that have been found in the county in 2020, and will discuss how such finds contribute to our understanding of the archaeological landscape in the East Midlands and beyond.
