Leny Woods archaeology project: traditional kiln experiment

Loading Events
This event has passed.

Bringing together everything we’ve learned about the heritage of Callander’s woodlands over the last three months, we will be building and firing a traditional charcoal kiln to conclude our Leny Woods archaeology project. This will help us find out more about how charcoal was made and what life was like for the hardy colliers who worked in the woods all-year round in all-weathers.

Volunteers can help out throughout the week with various tasks, but we would particularly appreciate help with constructing the traditional kiln and charcoal burners hut on Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 5th, Thursday 6th, and Friday 7th June. Please note that this will involve significant manual handling, including the moving of heavy timber. All instructions will be provided by professionals from Northlight Heritage and no previous experience is necessary.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please contact Julie on julie.wilson@lochlomond-trossachs.org or 01389 727 723.
