WallWatch Volunteer Details – Start-up Workshop 12th April

Local people needed to play key role in monitoring Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site.

A project which engages local people in the vital work of conserving the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site (WHS) is seeking new volunteers for the spring following a successful trial.

WallWatch will train volunteers to monitor the condition of the World Heritage Site and equip them with the skills necessary to undertake surveys of the Wall itself and other archaeological remains.

It is hoped that the work of the project and its volunteers will be key to the future management of one of the world’s most popular and important archaeological landscapes.

WallWatch is co-ordinated and managed as part of the Hadrian’s Wall Community Champions project, based within Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums (TWAM). The project will provide sound data on which to measure the condition of and continuing threats to the archaeology of the World Heritage Site, acting as an effective ‘early warning’ system.

It will enable particular problems to be highlighted and prioritised whilst also providing a benchmark for monitoring future change. An initial start-up workshop will be held on Sunday 12 April 2015 at Housesteads Roman Fort.

To register your interest in becoming a ‘Wallwatcher,’ please either email Kerry.shaw@twmuseums.org.uk or call 0191 277 2335 as soon as possible.
