This panel was designed to illustrate the findings of an archaeological dig in 2016, which revealed the foundations of a medieval bloomery site that developed into a refinery forge. A highly realistic computer-generated reconstruction was the centrepiece. Commissioned by the Rusland Horizons Landscape Partnership Scheme and the Lake District National Park Authority.
Well-designed and beautifully created display panels play a vital role in explaining the significance of remnants from a past way of life. The Cunsey Forge panel, produced by Anna Gray, is a first-class example of this.
