A Good Day on the Hill

FSCHHistoryDay2017On Sunday 24 September 2017, we set up our usual stall at the biennial History Day organised by the Friends of St. Catherine’s Hill and this year benefiting from the Lottery funding to celebrate the role of the Hill as a training ground for ANZAC troops in World War I.   Luckily the weather was kind to us and we experienced only a single shower, albeit rather heavy, which occurred in the morning.

We were pleased to welcome many interested visitors to our display in the archaeology shelter which we shared with representatives from the Portable Antiquities Scheme, Bournemouth University and a display of photographs from early archaeological aerial surveys of the Hill which happened to show the First World War trenching exercises.  The photo above shows the shelter and our stall to the right, unusually quiet just before the opening of the event.  Altogether it was a very enjoyable day and the organisers are to be congratulated on the smooth running of the event.
