Pathways to your Past: A workshop to launch and upskill your community history group (21st September 2019, Selby)


This event is for new and established community archaeology and history groups. The day will consist of presentations, displays and exhibitions by archaeological groups with a series of workshops to help develop skills, and includes a keynote speech by Time Team’s own Carenza Lewis!

The event is designed to help provide advice and skills to community archaeology and history groups to set up and run community archaeology projects from start to finish. There will be a number of talks on various different aspects including on funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Community First Yorkshire, as well as on how to set up and run archaeology projects from a range of archaeological specialists.

The venue for the day is the magnificent Selby Abbey, which celebrate its 950th year since its construction. The Abbey is easily accessible and is a 5 minute walk from the station. There is ample parking in Selby including on South Parade (YO8 4HE) and Back Micklegate (YO8 3GH).
