This project will research and record the development of the island town from under & over ground. The findings of such will be uploaded unto the digital memory map and shared with everyone.
Project Partner: Lough Erne Landscape Partnership
Theme: Sharing Our Stories
Researching what lies underground will inform and supplement existing information/available materials on how Enniskillen has developed over the centuries.
Much research and information is already available, and it is intended that this project will synthesise and build on these, not duplicate. The surveys and community archaeology dig will create interest and engagement with Enniskillen’s history and heritage. The findings from the survey and the dig will be uploaded and shared on the memory map, along with memories, stories, maps, photos etc which have been captured as part of this project, hence preserving heritage for all to enjoy.
Volunteers will be trained in metal detecting and geophysical surveying and we are encouraging both adults and children to get involved in the 2-week community archaeological dig.
We will shortly be inviting individuals/organisations to tender for the development and delivery of this project
