Children dig into the past

Digging into the past have been pupils from primary schools around Buxton who have taken part in an archaeological project. The dig has been taking place in a bid to uncover more about the history of the area around the henge of Arbor Low and Gib Hill situated near to Monyash. The Arbor Low Environs Project, set to take place over the next five years, is a collaboration between archaeologists, students, volunteers and farmers. It is being co-directed by Drs Ian and Catherine Parker Heath, independent research archaeologists and Dr Hannah Cobb of the Department of Archaeology at the University of Manchester. Several test trenches, about a metre square, have been dug as experts try and find out more about the history of the site.
