There is a free guided walk starting from Loftus Town Hall on Tuesday 24th. August at 11:00 am
We shall join Dr.Stephen Sherlock and his team who are engaged in archaeological studies at the site of the earliest commercial salt processing facility in Western Europe.
Dr.Sherlock will provide us with an update on recent investigations at this site and we will also have the opportunity to see a demonstration of flint knapping and gain an understanding of this very ancient craft from specialist flint knapper, John Lord.
Information obtained at this site together with current investigations are now considered to be of significant national interest as it represents a transitional step from people engaged in hunting and gathering to a settled productive community.
Walkers are requested to wear sturdy shoes or boots. Please bring light refreshments and have waterproof clothing if needed.
