Help Investigate Clyde and Avon Valley Place Names
Do you know the meanings behind the name of the place where you live? Are you interested in finding out how to research and understand the meanings of the place names of the Clyde and Avon Valley?
Over the next four Wednesdays CAVLP Heritage be running taster sessions on how to explore the place names of the Clyde and Avon Valley.
In the session you will first learn how to carry out this work before working as a group to explore particular areas of interest. Hopefully by the end of each session you will be able to go away and do this work yourself.
After the Wednesday sessions are finished we will have a follow up session bringing everyone together to compile and assess what we have all done.
This kind of 'crowd-sourcing' research into place names, has never been attempted before and it offers the potential for people to really contribute to the understanding of the historical development of the Clyde and Avon Valleys.
The Wednesday taster sessions will be at:
David Dale's House, New Lanark, 4th November, 6-8pm
Hamilton Town House, 11th of November, 2-5pm
David Dale's House, New Lanark, 18th November, 6-8pm
Hamilton Town House, 25th of November, 2-5pm
Other taster sessions as well as more in-depth workshops will be taking place over the next few weeks, so keep checking the CAVLP Heritage facebook page for updates if you can’t make these ones.
CAVLP Heritage will also be launching the next project, Capturing the Past, in the next few weeks. Details of how to get involved in this exciting new archaeological opportunity will be posted shortly.
