This project will create a unique programme of archaeological investigations across the city that will ‘uncover’ a fascinating insight to Derry’s past and present heritage.
It will also involve every primary school in the city, exploring their stories through personal objects. A programme of community-led excavations across the city will look at its medieval history, its 19th Century industry, early 20th Century tenements and more recent sites associated with conflict.
Each primary school will develop stories about their families and their surroundings through 50 objects – telling the ever developing story of the city. The year-long project will culminate in an exhibition, showing the findings, with displays, oral histories, and an elucidation of the city’s cultural heritage.
