Those who remember our failed attempt to get a grant for a major archaeological project in Levens Park will be reassured to know that our time was well spent, because we decided to use our preliminary research as the base for a reappraisal of the the findings of David Sturdy's "rescue dig" carried out in the late 1960s when the proposed alignment of the Kendal to Crooklands M6 link road threatened to cross the northern end of Levens Park.
The reappraisal was led by Tom Clare, former Cumbria County Archaeologist, ably assisted by LLHG members Ian Hodkinson, Geoff Cook, Mark Simpson and Stephen Read, and has produced a paper which has been accepted for publication in the Archaeological Journal which is the journal of the Royal Archaeological Institute.
We are very proud to have been published in a major academic journal. You can read the paper HERE.
