Events & Outreach


Monitoring, and works in advance of construction along 19km of A1 motorway upgrade between Leeming and Barton in North Yorkshire uncovered numerous new and known archaeological sites. The fieldwork was undertaken between 2013 and 2017 and revealed human activity dating from the Early Bronze Age through to the post medieval period, with a large part of the project being focussed on Roman occupation at various points along what was once Dere Street.
