Duration 90 minutes
The earthworks of the medieval village of Hanging Grimston, which lie on the western scarp edge of the Yorkshire Wolds close to Kirby Underdale and Wharram Percy, overlie earlier Iron Age and Romano-British settlement remains. Three seasons of excavation have so far been undertaken as part of the Hanging Grimston Community Archaeology Project, a joint venture by members and friends of the High Wolds Heritage Group (HWHG) and the Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society (SAHS). The principal aim of the excavation is to test, mainly through excavation, ideas derived from recent earthwork and geophysical surveys about the nature and development of settlement at the site.
There is plenty of free car parking on site.
The visit will include a tour of the village earthworks in a pasture field so please wear appropriate footwear.
The tour is free but please register your intention of attending via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
A map with instructions on how to find the site will be sent on registration.
