Letter: Take a look at archaeological excavations

Come along to the open day this Sunday.
Come along to the open day this Sunday.

Fridaythorpe Fimber Wetwang Archaeology Project (FFWAP) is a newly formed community archaeology group. We are currently undertaking an excavation of a ladder settlement which initially developed during the later Iron Age (c 200BC).

The site was occupied throughout the Romano-British period which ended around 400AD.

Last Sunday we held a Family Fun Day with the assistance of the East Riding

Archaeological Society. Young visitors were invited to take part in an Archaeology Trail Passport. This Sunday (17 September) is the final day of excavation along with an open day.

Guided site tours will be held at 10.30am, 12.30pm and 2.30pm. Many of the artefacts discovered during the excavation will form part of the display and tea and coffee will be available.

Stout footwear is essential.

The site is located at Green Lane Farm just off the A166 between Fridaythorpe and Wetwang. The site will be signposted and a marshall will be in attendance at the road junction. All are most welcome to visit.
