We would like to invite you to an archaeology open day to be held at the A1 Leeming to Barton compound at Scotch Corner on Saturday 31st October 2015.
This will be an opportunity to see first-hand some of the archaeology investigations that have been carried out prior to construction of the A1 Leeming to Barton Improvement Scheme, as well as a selection of finds recovered during the excavations.
Places to attend the archaeology day are free but must be booked in advance, and the visit will consist of:
• Guided visits to an archaeology dig – this will involve a short mini-bus trip from the Scotch Corner compound, and walking a short distance over rough ground, so strong shoes or boots are advised
• Opportunity to speak to archaeologists and learn about the work being carried out.
• The chance to view some of the finds from recent excavations.
The Itinerary for the day will consist of;
- Taking the bus for a tour to the site where you will be given an induction
- Arrival at site
- Site tour
- Chance for questions before returning to the compound
This is a free event to allow local people to see some of the excavations, important that have been recovered during the works that tell the story of this part of North Yorkshire. Places on the tours are free, but access to the site means that spaces are limited and must be booked in advance.
