As part of the Coleraine campus’ 50th anniversary celebrations, Ulster University is inviting the local community on to campus to explore the heritage of the site on Saturday 20th of October, 2-5pm.

The Coleraine campus boasts a rich heritage including evidence of the earliest people on the island of Ireland from over 9,000 years ago, medieval forts, a deserted 18th century village and a shipwreck.

Students and staff from the School of Geography and Environmental Science will be available to guide visitors through the campus’ heritage trail.

Visitors are also welcome to discover the campus’ past on a self-guided tour, with maps and information provided on the day.

There will also be fun and games for all the family including a replica of the armada made of lego.

Dr Karise Hutchinson, Provost of the Coleraine campus said:

“As we celebrate our 50th anniversary we are encouraging the local community to come and explore our wonderful campus and all it has to offer. Our heritage event is an opportunity to go back even further than the past 50 years and discover the vibrant history of the site including Coleraine’s medieval and stone age past.

This free event will be of interest to families and also historians, researchers, genealogists, students and anyone with an interest in cultural and community life, past or present.”
