For our second archaeological dig, the Centre for Community Archaeology, Queen’s University, excavated a green field site in the village of Newmills, Co. Tyrone, from 9 – 20 August. Records show that there was once a spade factory, co-operative dairy and a terrace of workers’ houses called Creamery Row in the field. Our thanks to Mihail Bell for the opportunity to excavate his field.
Newmills Primary School Archaeology Summer Scheme, Day 1
Thanks to the Great Place Scheme, the pupils of Newmills Primary School had the opportunity to visit the excavation and also take part in a series of entertaining and educational activities and games at the school. Thank you to Rita Calwell and her Active Learning Company for providing all the amazing fun at the school hall and the staff of the Centre for Community Archaeology, QUB, for giving the pupils the chance to be archaeologists for a day.
