New date for your diary – Saturday 14th September 2013.

The June outing for members of the Museum Society has been postponed, and will now be taking place on 14th September instead.

We will visit the Priest’s House Museum in Wimborne Minster, a museum of local history and archaeology which has a new visitor centre with community space and tearoom, in an attractive garden.

We will also visit Dr Martin Green’s Down Farm, on Cranborne Chase. The Chase is a fascinating landscape of great archaeological interest that includes the Dorset Cursus and Ackling Dyke, Bronze Age barrows and Roman and Iron Age buildings. Down Farm covers many of the rich, multi-period archaeological features, surrounded by lovely countryside which is being restored to chalk downland pasture. Dr Green will show us some of the large collection of ancient artefacts that have been excavated from the farm.

If you are a Museum Society member and interested in joining what promises to be a very enjoyable day out, please contact Jane Mann on 01225 865967 for more details.

If you are not currently a Member, you might want to consider membership – it’s only £10 a year!
