Saturday 19th October – BAS Lecture: Mesolithic-Neolithic Colne Valley

Mesolithic-Neolithic histories in the Colne Valley: narrating an everyday landscape

by Samantha Brummage

Historic England talks about the significance of prehistoric archaeology for understanding the development of a multi-cultural, multi-layered country, and the impact that prehistoric people had on the character of places.  The character of the Colne Valley is witness to that prehistoric heritage, and can be traced through the wealth of archive material that we have at our disposal.  My research uses Local Historic Environment Records as a starting point to bring records of excavation, field-walking, collections, chance finds and palaeoenvironmental survey into an integrated, and multi-layered, prehistoric landscape.
