DATES FOR YOUR DIARY


NDAS winter/spring lecture and events programme


17 March 2015 7:00 pm   

AGM - The activity for the evening, following the business section, will be an “Ask the Experts” question and answer session. A panel of local archaeologists and historians will be available for NDAS members to ask questions about local archaeology. Members are kindly asked to put forward their questions to the Secretary/a Committee Member in advance of the event, to give the panel a chance to be able to answer more fully on desired topics. Undoubtedly there will also probably be off-the-cuff questions on the night. This will be followed by the usual AGM refreshments. This is your chance to ask that question you never knew the answer to!

A Field Guide to The Archaeology of the Taw and Torridge Estuaries

Man has always used the environment for his own ends and an estuary is a choice place for exploitation. It is a natural resource, a haven, an entrance and an exit, a birthplace and a graveyard for ships.

This guide gives details of all the important sites of the estuary. Geographically, this survey ranges from either side of the estuary mouth, to include the beaches of Westward Ho! and Saunton and the Burrows of Northam and Braunton. Upstream, it goes as far as Barnstaple on the Taw and Annery (Weare Giffard) on the Torridge.

As well as being available from a number of local outlets the book is also available from NDAS - Order Form
