The following is our 2019 list of practical activities. Further activities may be added as the year progresses. Detail will be added as soon as they are confirmed by the organisers.
If you are a 'Hands-on' member, you are welcome to join in one, a few, or all of the activities listed below. It does not matter if you have been involved in a particular activity before as we always offer on-site training. However for most of the activities a certain level of physical fitness is required.
Please note: Activities managed by organisations other than the IAG may give preference to those who have participated before.
There will be further surveying of the site at Studfold. Led by Bob Moore.
The Documentary Group will continue its researches into George Smith, land agent. Led by Carol Howard.
The Ingleborough Cairn Survey will continue from April onwards, visiting new sites and re-visiting existing ones. Led by Yvonne Luke.
Classes will be held on the creation of pen and ink drawings of features from measured surveys. There will be a basic class for beginners with a more complex session later in the year. These sessions are especially for those involved in the Cairn and Studfold surveys. Led by Carol Howard.
Total Station training
There will be an opportunity to learn the basics of Total Station surveying. Led by John Cuthbert.
Ingleborough's Placed Stones
In the wider Ingleborough area, there are a number of instances where limestone pieces have been set vertically in the rock. This project will investigate these placements, record them and consider their significance. Led by David Johnson.
Experimental Archaeology - build a lime kiln
There will be a practical project to build a sow kiln and a modern-type kiln to compare output. The project will include a public event to demonstrate the work of the group. Led by David Johnson.
