The results of the archaeological exploration on Lancaster’s Castle Hill will feature in a special exhibition held in the former A Wing at Lancaster Castle, from 10am on Saturday 29 November to 5pm on Sunday 30 November.

Alongside the exhibition we will be hosting HackLancaster for the first time.  A 24hour hackathon supported by The Creative Exchange at Lancaster University.  The hackathon will see coders, creatives and the next generation of heritage champions work with the data from the recent survey alongside other data sources including the Urban Archaeological Database.  The hackathon will run from 10am on Saturday to 1pm on Sunday.  The exhibition will also give visitors a chance to explore and feed into the work taking place during the hackathon.

The recent geophysical survey was carried out by Oxford Archaeology on Vicarage Fields and Quay Meadow, with support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The results of the survey have now been provided to the Beyond the Castle team and will help with developing plans for future exploration of the site. Take a look at our dedicated site: www.hacklancaster.orghack_lanc_logo
