Between the 11th and 26th July the Festival of Archaeology was celebrating its 25th anniversary! There are numerous events throughout the country, but we’ve selected a couple near to us, as we are based in Lancashire! The events continue into August, also. The Festival of Archaeology was set up to appraise people of the history and archaeology associated with their local area. There are numerous events across the country, with activities aplenty from digging, to walks, to talks and tours!
Our telephone answering service is based in Lancashire!
Lancashire is steeped in history itself, and last year we helped support Lancashire Day! Read our blog on the origins of the day which is celebrated each year in November.
