Since our excavations earlier in the summer, our project has been gaining quite a bit of attention through the press, academics and general enthusiasts. We are thrilled at the reception, and this is a credit to the hard work of the volunteers.
We have a few more exciting Aberlady Angles events before our final closing lecture on the 1st November.
Throughout October, we will be returning to schools to have some fun with Anglo Saxon poetry and music. As part of this, we have partnered with Lamp House Music based in Haddington, to offer a special workshop in the school holidays for school children to write and record their own Anglo-Saxon chart toppers. Details about this will be released shortly.
Our Aberlady Angles Feast will be held on the evening of the 29th October 2016. Put this in your diary, you will not want to miss out! We will be celebrating the fantastic achievements of ACHS and the wonderful volunteers who have been involved in true early Medieval style, by eating, drinking and being entertained- and will also feature a display on the project. As we can only accommodate certain numbers, this will be on a registration basis, and details will be released shortly. Please keep an eye out for further details about our feast. If you’d like to ensure you are kept in the loop, you may want to consider joining the Aberlady Angles Mailing List. To do this, fill in our contact form and we will add you on to our distribution list.
The final lecture of our project will be held on the evening of Tuesday 1st November, in the Kirk Stables. ‘The Sum of all its Parts’ will be a celebration of our archaeological excavations and findings, as well as a chance to look at all of the activities the project has encompassed and its impact.
