Friday 7th July 14.30 – 16.00 in the Workshop Tent – 15 places
The aim of the workshop is to stimulate an awareness of how changes made in the historic (and possibly prehistoric periods) have affected what we see in our villages and surrounding countryside today. Using old and current O.S. maps we will examine why changes sometimes occurred to our boundaries, fields and roads. We will briefly look at the importance of ‘Place Name Studies’ and at how some national scale events are reflected at a local level.
Adrienne Brunton trained as a primary school teacher specialising in art. However, in 2001 she decided to indulge her interests in landscape and anthropology by embarking on a part-time course in archaeology at Oxford University. By 2011 she had a post-graduate Certificate in Archaeology. Since then she has been exploring the history of Mixbury and its castle.
