NORTHERN Ireland's unique Neolithic landscape is to be conserved and promoted following a lottery grant of £2 million.

It is hoped the funding will help people "step back 10,000 years" and explore the north's rural and isolated landscape during the Neolithic era, a period of time characterised by the beginning of farming, the domestication of animals and the development of pottery and weaving.

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has awarded money to the Heart of Ancient Ulster landscape partnership to help protect 144km2 of outstanding Neolithic land as well as reconnecting the local community to our "unique natural, built and cultural heritage".
