Understanding Landscapes

We are delighted to be partners in the University of Exeter’s Understanding Landscapes project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

 

The project is enabling communities in the Tamar Valley and elsewhere to investigate and analyse the origins of the local historic landscape and become engaged in its future management.

In the Tamar Valley, the focus areas are Calstock, Bere Ferrers and Cotehele with their rich diversity of heritage, spanning the prehistoric through to post-medieval periods. The project is focussing initially on the Roman and medieval communities. There have been opportunities for volunteers to get involved in a community archaeological excavation at Calstock and to carry out desktop research to make exciting archaeological discoveries across the Tamar Valley AONB and beyond.

Find out more information about the project on the Understanding Landscapes website or follow the Understanding Landscapes Facebook page for the latest information.

You can also learn more about the 2019 Calstock Archaeological Dig by watching the ‘An Unexpected Discovery’ video.
