Speakers will discuss a broad range of topics across current and future research in the archaeology of Eastern Yorkshire including landscape studies, settlement patterns, geophysical prospection, aerial photography, excavation, isotopic analysis and artefact studies. The day will take place in Mortimer’s home town of Driffield at Driffield School on Saturday 17 September 2011.
