    3. Hi all Research Services staff at Penrith City Library have a number of events coming up in April and May. 10 April - Life at Lochwood Estate: archaeology and artefacts - talk by Shona Lindsay in conjunction with the archaeological display currently in the Library - In December 2016 a team of archaeologists from Artefact Heritage conducted archaeological excavations at the Oakdale South site located near Kemps Creek. They uncovered State and locally significant archaeological remains associated with the nineteenth century occupation and farming of the site. The archaeological remains and artefacts presented a gateway into the lifeways of the people who had lived and worked at Lochwood Estate. This talk will discuss the history of the site, the archaeology uncovered, and some of the artefacts that were discovered that are currently on display at Penrith Library.
