Landscape Archaeology

Leader - Ron Weston
 Meetings - monthly on the final Thursday - summer only

If you are fond of country walking and would like to learn more about the historic landscape of the Peak District, I’m sure that the Landscape Archaeology group will appeal to you.

Our programme consists of four field meetings held in the summer months (there are no indoor meetings). We visit places with good visual evidence of the past; these include prehistoric sites, Romano-British and medieval settlements and traces of former industrial activities.
