SWAAG is a group of enthusiasts in the northernmost Yorkshire dales who are contributing to the knowledge base of the history of our dales through archaeological and related activity. SWAAG, affiliated with the Swaledale Museum, began work in July 2009 under the guidance and supervision of Tim Laurie FSA, the leading expert on prehistoric landscapes in the area.
Our work programme meets a wide range of interests: desk-top research on documents, Google Earth, aerial and site photographs; site surveying, mapping and drawing; linking geology to historic land use; recording ancient and relict vegetation and trees; field-walking and producing published reports.
Please explore the website (www.swaag.org) for our archaeological reports, Tim Laurie’s publications, photographs and records of wonderful trees and fungi, and general Historic Environment Records.
SWAAG welcomes new members. Our walks and meetings are open to all, so please come along to see if you would like to join us.
