About Public Archaeology Talk - Discoveries at Black Hill & Castle Qua

Come along to Thornton Road Community Centre at 7pm on Tuesday the 5th of December to find out about the excavations that took place this summer at Black Hill and Castle Qua as part of the Clyde and Avon Valley Landscape Partnership.

Black Hill is one of the largest Iron Age forts in west central Scotland but very little is known about it. Archaeologists set out this summer to work out when people built the fort, why they built it and what kind of activates took place there.

The site of Castle Qua, near Lanark, is one of the most intriguing archaeological sites in Scotland and has been interpreted as both an Iron Age site and as a Medieval Castle. Excavations this summer are the first to have taken place there and have revealed a fascinating story that has raised more questions than answers.

The FREE talk will take place at Thornton Road Community Centre on Tuesday the 5th of December from 7 to 9pm. All welcome.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Public Archaeology Talk - Discoveries at Black Hill & Castle Qua are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
