We have been granted HLF funding to investigate Iron Age settlement in the southern Vale of York following a successful dig between 2012 and 2014. The site has numerous crop marks of Iron Age date and geophysical survey has revealed many more Iron Age features not revealed in crop marks. We appear to have an Iron Age settlement with two trapezoidal double-ditched enclosures containing up to four roundhouse ring ditches, one c 20m in diameter, and the other possibly two ring ditches. There are numerous other ditches and field boundaries. Skills Passports will available to suitable candidates and accreditation of archaeological practice for those already having a passport. Instruction and mentoring will be available on site. All tools will be provided. Joining Instructions sent to all volunteers on receiving an expression of interest.

There is a train station at York (12 miles to the North and Selby, 6 miles to the south-west). Buses to the village from York only, Lifts can be arranged where necessary.
