Meeting, 9th October and walk 10th October both postponed
Sadly we have had to cancel our Tuesday members meeting tomorrow October 9th, due to a clash of bookings at The Buck Hotel.
We are hoping to reschedule our talk by Stuart Ross of Northern Archaeological Associates for the near future and this will be advertised on the website as soon as the new date is confirmed.
In a further ironical twist of fate, Alan's walk has had to be cancelled because of moors closure for shooting.
Sincere apologies for any inconvenience. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible!

Roman Pottery Workshop with Graham Taylor; the finished results!
Thanks to the Fabric of Place project, SWAAG members were lucky enough to bag a free Roman Pottery workshop led by the very talented Graham Taylor. Participants tried a variety of processes including making decorated tiles and lamps.
Now everything has been into the kiln and out of the kiln. What an amazing assemblage! Proud makers can collect their work at the next SWAAG meeting, 7pm on September 11th at The Buck Hotel in Reeth. See you there!
