DVLHG was formed in the early 1990s and runs a programme of activities and talks for its members. Our five year long study of the whole valley has restarted extending the survey to cover areas not walked in earlier phases. Our findings led to our current major project with Oxford Archaeology North excavating three medieval longhouse sites near Seathwaite Tarn.

Dates are now confirmed for the second season of the Duddon Dig at Longhouse Close. The archaeologists are very excited at this site which shows signs of more extensive occupation than at Tongue House A.
There will be a volunteer training day on Sunday 4th June 2017. We will dig for 16 days from June 10th-16th. The Open Day for visitors will take place on Saturday 10th June 2017.
