Archaeology of Dyce to be unearthed at talk

04/02/13

The rich archaeology of Dyce and its immediate vicinity, and features of its landscape and townscape which date from 3000BC to World War II will be the subject of a free talk at Aberdeen Maritime Museum, Shiprow on Wednesday 06 February.

The talk by Aberdeen City Council's lead curator (local history and archaeology) Judith Stones will feature the stone circles, pictish symbol stones, St Fergus Medieval Church, the Aberdeenshire canal and Dyce Railway Station.

Judith will chat about World War II monuments and remains; some well-known, others less so as well as the memorial to Queen Victoria's first visit to Aberdeen, erected by a proud Lord Provost, landowner and shipowner.

Judith is also keen to hear about any stories or hidden gems about Dyce from members of the audience.

The talk starts at 12.30pm and will last approximately 30 minutes.

Advance booking is required by telephoning the museum on (01224) 337714.
