Festival of British Archaelogy Poster Displays

                             .

These pages are online versions of regular public displays presented by UWHG for the Festival of British Archaeology over several years.

 

The topics are varied and represent the range of activities and interests of the group. The illustrations and text of the display are presented here, but not in the original form as transferring the large amount of information for our website has inevitably altered their appearance.  

 

We are immensely grateful to Phil and Pat Carroll, founder members of UWHG for the enormous amount of work that they put into the creation of these displays.

Threshfield Quarry
Festival of British Archaeology (FoBA) 2008
FoBA2208Intro.jpg

This was a two sided display consisting of 32 panels and was produced by the UWHG for the Festival of British Archaeology in 2008. (for the purposes of web display the contents of the lower panels (Oral history) have been compressed into one panel/webpage)

It was displayed it at Church House, Grassington and at Long Ashes Leisure Park for the Festival. It was also displayed at the North Yorkshire County Council’s Historic Enviroment day in Northallerton and was later  loaned to the Tarmac Quarry at Swinden. A small section was displayed at the Yorkshire Dales National Park’s Historic Enviroment event at Grassington.

Further information about the Threshfield Quarry Project can be viewed on the Yorkshire Dales Landscape Research Trust’s website here.

Long Ashes Park
Each year since 2006, the Upper Wharfedale Heritage Group have been fortunate in having the support of the Long Ashes Management and Staff. Without their open and generous hospitality, the group would not be able to mount such long-standing Festival of British Archaeology displays, and for this kind help we are most grateful.

Once again the UWHG committee would like to express their thanks to Pat & Phil Carroll for their time and hard work in producing this display
