Once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted the Partnership says it will be working with the local Pendle Archaeology Group (PAG) to advance research and give people the opportunity to discover more about archaeology.

The Group plans to investigate the state of the Roman Road as it runs through the Pendle area and hopes to create a community test pit project in a local village.

Meanwhile the Partnership suggests those interested in building their archaeology knowledge seek online training such as the six week free Dig Ventures’ course ‘How to Do Archaeology’.
