A1 Leeming to Barton Improvements
Archaeology Open Day
Saturday 29th November 2014
We would like to invite you to an archaeology day at Catterick Racecourse (north side of the A6136) on Saturday 29th November 2014. This will be an opportunity to see first-hand some of the archaeology investigations that have been carried out prior to construction of the A1 Leeming to Barton Improvement Scheme. This archaeology day will consist of:
– Guided walks to an archaeology dig (starting at 10:30 am and continuing at hourly intervals until 2:30 pm) – this will be crossing rough ground, so strong shoes or boots are advised
– Opportunity to speak to archaeologists and learn about the work being carried out
– The chance to view photos and some of the finds from recent excavations
This is a free event for local people to see important items from many years ago in this area. I hope that you can make it to see us on the day.
Should you require any further information, please contact Stuart Culley, Public Liaison Officer on 01677 932 348.
