Discovering archaeological heritage at Pinhey’s Point

Visit Pinhey's Point on Monday, 27 June, 2016, at 7 pm for the Foundation's first event in their “Summer Speaker Series “

The presenter is Ian Badgley, archaeologist with the National Capital Commission and a member of the Foundation’s board.

Old photographs, drawings and other archival sources indicate that a number of historical buildings and architectural features that  once occurred at Pinhey’s Point have disappeared over time.  One such building is a carriage or drive shed which, as shown in an 1890s photo, was built against the barn.  Public archaeological excavations conducted in August 2015 and Spring 2016 have revealed the remains of this building, as well as shed new light on an associated stone wall foundation. The results of the excavation and their interpretive value are presented and discussed. Come early and enjoy the PPF’s summer exhibits.

This is a free event. Light refreshments will be served
