The Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group (SWAAG) has received £76,000 from the HLF to fund the Swaledale Big Dig. Starting next year, this project aims to discover more about Reeth, Grinton and Fremington areas of Swaledale and Arkengarthdale involving the help of local people, schools, community groups, parish councils and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority.

The project will be launched on 13th March 2014 at a public meeting in the Reeth Memorial Hall which will be addresed by Dr Carenza Lewis from the University of Cambridge. Followed two days later with an Open Day in the Reeth Memorial Hall when members of the community will have the opportunity to learn more about the project and what is currently known about the development of the local settlements. They will also be able to discuss their interests and explore the wide range of courses on offer with the members of SWAAG.

SWAAG is a volunteer run community group with more than 40 active members who have been very successful in obtaining significant levels of funding. This support has enabled them to develop a programme of landscape and geophysical surveying throughout the local area, establish an informative website, three seasons of excavation, plus events for local schools and themed walks for the general public.
