29th Sept & 5th October
Dr Anneke Hackenbroich and I had a very productive meeting with the leader of Young and Sweet, the Haltwhistle Youth Club.
We are working with 3 different groups on this project. They have been inspired by the Roman Army Museum and a visit to Magna Fort where they were introduced to the serious effects of climate change as the ground is drying out and how this translates into a measurable loss of their heritage as it continues. In ten or twenty years all the organic matter that tells of the lives of the women and children, eg. leather shoes, will have dried out and fallen apart as though it has never existed.
They also saw where their work will be displayed in the Roman Army Museum from February until end of March and then it will move to its permanent home at the Youth Club. The plan is to have an additional banner made to display on the gate at Magna, to get people talking.
