The West Yorkshire Archaeology Advisory Service is holding its thirteenth annual Archaeological Day School, returning to the spectacular venue of the Royal Armouries, Leeds. In the morning programme representatives from West Yorkshire Archaeological Advisory Service will bring delegates up to date with the results of recent archaeological work in West Yorkshire, covering historic buildings, industrial archaeology and other excavations and fieldwork. There will also be an update from the Historic Landscape Characterisation team. Our afternoon programme will address the recent work of the Portable Antiquities Scheme’s West & South Yorkshire Finds Liaison Officer and we will hear from Site Director, Simon Tomson about the fascinating work undertaken by Pontefract and District Archaeological Society on St Richard’s Dominican Friary excavations. Finally, we welcome back by popular demand potter John Hudson, with an entertaining demonstration on historic pottery making. There will also be exhibitions from a number of local organisations and societies. Please book for this event by contacting Marianne James. You can also register and buy tickets online by visiting the West Yorkshire Archaeology Advisory Service website.
