19th February 2021:

Part one of our research seminar on the extraordinary findings of the Windy Harbour road scheme in Lancashire is now live on our YouTube channel.

An exciting major programme of research is being undertaken by OA North looking at late Mesolithic to Bronze Age activity next to Poulton-le-Fylde near Blackpool as part of improvements to the A585. This scheme by Highways England and Kier Highways provides an important opportunity to investigate the knotty question of the transition from hunting and gathering to farming in the area around 6000 years ago.

We have just released part on of the research seminar on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/lm5KYepPsog The video includes an introduction to the project, a site tour, an overview of the finds and initial thoughts from our panel of distinguished experts.

You can join the panellists for part two to contribute your ideas and questions to our future research during a live Q&A session at 11am on Saturday 27th February 2021. To register, visit our dedicated Windy Harbour Research Seminar page. Questions can either be submitted in advance or asked live, and the session will be recorded and shared on our YouTube account shortly afterwards.
