We are a membership group for everyone interested in Yorkshire's archaeology.

We are a charitable organisation (registered charity no. 519581) run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of those interested in the welfare and better understanding of Yorkshire's historic environment. We aim to encourage and promote greater public knowledge and involvement, and where possible to advance and assist relevant research.

We cover the historic Ridings of Yorkshire, from the Tees to the Humber, and from the Pennine moors to the east coast. The archaeology of this region is as diverse as its landscape, from the often-elusive remains of the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic in the Dales, to the military remains of the mid-twentieth century on the North Sea coast.

We are an independent charity funded by our members' and affiliates' subscriptions. Our committee is elected at the annual general meeting in February each year and meets four times during the year.

Join us for a unique learning experience at Hatfield Moors Open Day 2018. A joint event launching the Trackway Through Time project and the opening of the new Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve work base and Life Lab.

The Lindholme Neolithic trackway and platform lies within the Hatfield Moors SSSI. The site is also included in the Humberhead Peatlands National Nature Reserve, managed by Natural England.Exposed by mechanical peat cutting in the 1990s, the trackway and platform was first recognised in 2004 and was investigated archaeologically until 2006. Radiocarbon dated the monument to 2900-2500 BC, making it a Late Neolithic structure nearly 5,000 years old. It is the earliest example of a corduroy trackway known in Britain.

The Trackway Through Time project aims to build a reconstruction of the trackway and platform. Using experimental archaeology the public and volunteers will be engaged in how people lived and managed to travel across ancient landscapes. The reconstruction and new site interpretation will be used to focus visitors’ attention to the stories of the Humberhead Levels and the peat that preserves so much information.

This is a free event for all the family. No booking required.
