Get up to date with the past

Residents will be able to find out what archaeologists have discovered in Derbyshire and the Peak District over the past year during a special event.

The event will take place at the Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield as part of Archaeology Day on Saturday, January 11.

The annual Archaeology Day is organised by heritage teams from the Peak District National Park Authority, Derbyshire County Council and Chesterfield Borough Council.

Ken Smith, national park cultural heritage manager, said: “This is a great opportunity for Derbyshire and Peak District residents to catch up with the work of archaeologists in their area.”

The event is very popular and has a loyal following who return year on year. It has sold out for the past four years.
