Dartmoor through the ages

Step back in time to the Bronze Age with Dartmoor National Park Authority at the annual Bellever Day on Saturday 19th July. There will be activities and guided walks around the area to help reveal our Bronze Age past set against the back drop of the spectacular discoveries made from the White Horse Hill excavation.

There will also be a finds expert on hand so if you’ve dug anything up in your back garden and wondered what it might be then bring it along and get an expert opinion.

Moor than meets the eye will have a stand at the event to talk to people about the scheme.

Dartmoor through the ages is one of the themes of the Moor than meets the eye scheme which aims to involve a wider range of people with the heritage of Dartmoor. In particular one of the projects in this theme- Unveiling the Bronze Age landscape of the High Moor- aims to help people take part in a programme of surveying, research, excavation, interpretation and conservation management of this internationally important Bronze Age landscape. We are looking for volunteers who would like to get involved, taking part in walkover surveys and clearing sites which will start over the next few months. If you are interested then please get in touch by emailing moorthanmeetstheeye@gmail.com
