Help Corsenside Churchyard volunteers to make and install bird boxes at the beautiful St Cuthbert’s Church, Corsenside. You can even make a box to take home!

 

Nest boxes imitate holes and cavities that many birds naturally use for nesting and roosting and can help to compensate for a shortage of these natural sites.

 

This event is suitable for ages 7+. All persons under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

 

Please bring suitable outdoor clothing and footwear and be aware that there are no toilets or washing facilities available at this event.

 

St Cuthbert’s Churchyard, Corsenside is off the A68, north of West Woodburn: St Cuthbert’s Church, Corsenside, Hexham, NE48 2TA

 

Corsenside Churchyard volunteers will be doing other enjoyable things of wildlife benefit and historic interest throughout the year. Plans for 2020 include reptile surveying, exploring the social history of the churchyard, scything wildflower meadow areas and hay baling with a picnic!

This workshop will showcase the results of the survey, including:

Teas, coffees and biscuits will be provided.

Please let Karen know if you intent to come along; tel: 07741 194309, karen.collins@nnpa.org.uk

 

Human remains are our most direct link to past lifeways and their detailed study provides a wealth of information. This two-day course will consider the excavation and sampling of skeletons and cremation burials alongside recording methods in the field. This will be followed by an explanation of the methods used to recover information on age, sex and stature. We will consider the evidence for general health, disease and cause of death. Scientific advances in the analysis of aDNA and stable isotopes means that these methods are now increasingly employed in osteoarchaeology and you will learn about their potential. Ethical issues will be discussed alongside the legislation relating to human remains. This course will provide an opportunity to handle human remains and to apply some of the methods discussed. This course will be led by an experienced professional from Wessex Archaeology.

Suitable for over 18s only.

Cost: £10 per person (includes 2 full days of tuition, teas, coffees and biscuits. Participants will need to provide their own lunch).

Desk based assessments are a relatively low cost means of study for community groups and makes heritage accessible to those who may be unable to visit sites. In this two-day course, participants will be introduced to digital research methods, useful resources, historic maps and learn how to produce a quality desk-based assessment (DBA) of their chosen site. This course will be led by an experienced professional from Wessex Archaeology.

Suitable for ages 16+
