Bronze Age study on both sides of the Channel


East Sussex County Council (England) has joined up with French
heritage chiefs to teach children on both sides of the Channel about
the Bronze Age. Twenty five volunteers are being recruited to build
life size recreations of housing from the period as part of a new
project called 'Common Roots of European Culture'.

     The two-year project, which is part-financed by the European
Union, will give about 400 school children from East Sussex the
chance to learn about that famous period in history by visiting the
buildings at Bentley and Michelham Priory, near Hailsham. It is being
run - on this side of the Channel - by East Sussex Archaeology and
Museums Partnership (ESAMP), which the County Council set up with
Sussex Archaeology Society in 1984.

     As part of the same project, Asnapio, a northern French heritage
organisation, based in Lille, will be running a range of public
events over the Channel, as well as educational sessions for schools
and reconstructions of ancient buildings. In the first initiative,
Asnapio is inviting Sussex families to visit its archaeological park
in France on Sunday April 15, when the organisation is launching its
new season.
