Archaeology projects you can do alone or in small groups.

‘MyGalloway’, is about getting our national historical record, Canmore, updated. Canmore has lots of Galloway Glens buildings and monuments logged, but a surprisingly sparse amount of information on some them – sometimes not even a photo. It does however have a facility for volunteers to upload their own information, and so CYDI have produced reference information to support you in doing that.

‘Are We There Yet’ and is all about surveying our local milestones and way-markers. CYDI are hoping this is something that will be really interesting to people as well, and again, CYDI will feed the information in to the regional archaeologist so that it becomes part of our permanent historic record. CYDI have produced an information pack, recording form and table / maps of known milestones.

From David Bartholomew -

"We’ve had to cancel church services for the foreseeable future, but I’ll be providing some material each week by e-mail so that people can be together in spirit even if they can’t be in body. We want to provide hope, support and encouragement to people in these difficult and uncertain times.

Anyone who goes onto ‘Youtube’ and types ‘Balmaclellan’ into the search box will also find the video and any other videos they may have missed."
