A group of ACFA members had a fruitful trip last week (March 28-30) surveying in the Halterburn Valley, Kirk Yetholm. Over two days a number of sites were added to the known record and previously noted sites were drawn. Among the sites recorded were a number of prehistoric platform settlements bearing evidence for small roundhouses. The weather got the better of the team and the final day was abandoned but there are plans to return in March 2019 to continue the survey of the valley.
The winners of the annual photography competition were announced at the recent AGM and lunch. First place and winner of the quaich was Irene Dayer, who also took second place. Dugie MacInnes and Sue Hothersall shared third place while Dorothy Gormlie won the members’ vote and the accompanying woollie hat.
