Kirkburn Iron Age Sword replica

This evening at Wigan Archaeological Society we were treated to a presentation by one of our members. Graham Hanley is a skilled swordsmith and he has re-made the Kirkburn Iron Age Sword found in 1987 during the excavation of an Iron Age grave In Kirkburn, Yorkshire. It dates from the 3rd century BC. He was helping a friend who was researching a project for his University dissertation. The original sword is in the British Museum.

In Chorley Town Hall this afternoon a very special event was held to commemorate the first meeting of Chorley’s Suffrage movement on 11th January 1910. After introductions, singing and speeches a new plaque was unveiled my Chorley's amazing Margaret Rigby BEM who has been a Girl Guide for over 90 years. Margaret’s British Empire Medal was awarded to her at the age of 99 for services to the Guides in Lancashire. She is now an amazing 104 years old.
