Project Description

DIGGING FOR BRITONS – HIGH CARLINGILL

DIGGING FOR BRITONS

We are very excited to be working with the Lunesdale Archaeology Society and the Heritage Lottery Fund to be exploring Iron Age and Romano-British settlement in the Lune Gorge, Cumbria. Positioned on the at the meeting point of the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks, this stunning site is on a major north-south route through the uplands. The site at High Carlingill is one of a group of settlements spread down the side of this dramatic gorge, close to the Roman fort of Low Borrowbridge.

We are providing our expertise and local knowledge in uplands archaeology to support a fantastic group of volunteers surveying and excavating the settlement. Digs are taking place in October 2018 and May 2019, and anyone interested in taking part or finding out more can visit the project website using the button below.
