23 May 2018Battle of Otterburn Project launch - RTC Sports Centre - 24 June
I am emailing to let you know that we are about to launch our Revitalising Redesdale Battle of Otterburn: Conflict in the Landscape project, which will be exploring the story of the Battle of Otterburn. This project will have lots of volunteering opportunities, including researching historical records and assisting with investigative fieldwork such as metal detecting and excavations.
We are holding a launch event on Sunday 24th June, 2.00-4.30pm in Otterburn at the RTC Sports Centre- see attached poster. This is a free event and will include talks about the project and what we hope to uncover as well as a guided walk to the battlefield site. There will also be the opportunity to sign up as a volunteer for this project.
Thanks very much,
