This will help to improve the appearance, access, awareness, monitoring and interpretation of the site. As part of the process and after completion of the project the site may be used as an outdoor area to deliver lessons covering all aspects of the curriculum but importantly the children will also be introduced to archaeological techniques such as artefact identification, recording and excavating. Ultimately the project will introduce children to their local heritage, encourage their interaction with that heritage and inspire them to take pride in it. By improving access, carrying out any repair necessary repair work and developing a monitoring programme the project will also safeguard these monuments for the future. Interpretation through creative means such as artwork, photography, films, drama and social media will raise awareness more widely so that the local community and general public will also benefit.
