Bygone Borderlands

The latest information from Chris Bowles the Scottish Borders Archaeology Officer about Bygone Borderland (see 04/04/11):

Bygone Borderlands: Berwick Town Hall - Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th May 2011

This will include various displays and talks on the subject of history and heritage in the borders area.

I would also like to invite you to attend (or send a representative) to a meeting/discussion during Bygone Borderlands on the various aspects of the History Projects surrounding the Flodden 500 project and how your members might get involved. This meeting will be held in the council chamber on:

Sunday 15th May - 11am - we will be discussing

· The Flodden 500 Archaeology Project

· The Flodden 500 History Project

· The potential for a related Scottish Borders focussed history project looking at which Borderers went to battle, where they came from and if they ever came back

· The potential for a related archaeology project aimed at locating camps, muster points and the movements of the Scottish army after the battle in 1513

Sunday 15th May - 1pm - we will also be giving a short review of the archaeological results to date.

Both Saturday and Sunday there will also be a standing display including artefacts recovered from the site.
