Archaeology Day at Castle Hill
Are you interested in archaeology?
Dungannon and South Tyrone Borough Council is organising a guided walking tour of Castle Hill, led by Dr Emily Murray, Centre of the Archaeological Fieldwork, Queen's Univerity Belfast this Saturday at 1pm and 3pm.
In October 2007, Castle Hill was the site of an investigation by the Time Team (Channel 4), in association with EHS and Queen's University of Belfast.
The excavation revealed the foundations of the O'Neill Castle, side by side with a military fort constructed in the early 17th century after control of the hilltop had passed to Sir Arthur Chichester.
To book your place on the tour (pre booking essential), please telephone Ranfurly House on 028 8772 8600.
