The Excavations at Slack.

The Huddersfield Archaeological and Topographical Association appears likely to bring into public importance the district of Slack, situate on the borders of Scammonden. On the 16th ult. an appeal for help was made, through the columns of the Chronicle, by the indefatigable secretary of the association, the Rev. Geo. Lloyd, curate of Thurstonland, which has resulted in contributions, sufficiently large up to the present time, to enable the association to commence operations. Preliminary excavations have been made during the present week by several clerical and other members of the association, and on Monday next, we understand, it is intended freely to apply the mattock and the spade in search of Roman remains, with which the district round Slack is said to abound.
