Can You Dig It (CYDI)

When & Where

Thursday, 28 February 2019 - 7:30pm to 9:00pm
Parish Church Hall, St Mary St, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4DN

Event Details

The Steering Group for the CYDI project (advised by Andy Nicholson of D&G Council, Dr Lisa Brown of Historic Environment Scotland and David Devereux, local historian and archaeologist) have created an outline programme for the project, attached. This is based on the 2 years of development work and community consultation that the Galloway Glens carried out in 2016/2017, plus further thoughts. They would very much appreciate the thoughts of members on the attached programme as they refine it into the Research Design documents for each sub-project.

To be ready to launch the main phase of the project in April, they will be holding a series of consultations in February or early March.

They are also holding a series of talks to celebrate the start of Can You Dig It and to introduce plans to a wider audience. All are welcome.

- Gordon Memorial Hall, St Ninian’s Church, Castle Douglas on the 25th Feb
- CatStrand, New Galloway on the 27th Feb
- Kirkcudbright Parish Hall on the 28th Feb.

All events will start at 7:30pm with drinks and nibbles before the talk starts at 8, followed by the opportunity for questions and chatting at 9. The talk will review their understanding of the archaeological landscape, with specific reference to archaeological finds and research in the Galloway Glens area, as well as providing an overview of the Can You Dig It programme aims and events.
