Discovering archaeological heritage at Pinhey’s Point

A reminder that today, Monday, June 27, 2016, 7 pm, there's a lecture at Pinhey’s Point.

Photographs and archival sources indicate that a number of historical buildings and architectural features at Pinhey’s Point have disappeared over time. One such building is a carriage or drive shed, shown in an 1890s photo built against the barn. The results of public excavations of this building
conducted in August 2015 and May 2016 and their interpretive value are presented and discussed.

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

Arrive early to view a variety of exhibits at the museum this summer.
