Book highlights archaeological discoveries in East Yorkshire



The Hull and East Riding Museum contains some of the most spectacular archaeological discoveries in the north of England for the Iron Age and Roman period, treasures which feature in a new book: The Parisi: Britons and Romans in Eastern Yorkshire (History Press Paperback original, ISBN: 9780752448411) by expert Dr Peter Halkon, Lecturer in Archaeology in the History Department at Hull University.

As part of the celebrations for Hull’s City of Culture success, on Saturday 14 December, between 11am and 1pm, Dr Halkon will be giving free tours of the Celtic World and Roman galleries of the Hull and East Riding Museum, combined with opportunities to purchase the book and a book signing.

Featured in the book and displayed in the museum galleries are the Iron Age Hasholme log boat discovered by Dr Halkon and many other finds including objects from the chariot burials, the wooden figures from Roos Carr and a recreation of part of an Iron Age village. The tour and book also include the amazing Roman mosaics from Rudston and Brantingham and finds from archaeological digs in the region including those uncovered during research by the author of the book and your tour guide for this event.
