Yorkshire Festival of Archaeology 2018
Sat 14th July 2018 to Sat 14th July 2018
The historic parkland at Burton Constable is one of the best documented examples of a landscape worked by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Prior to the construction of the Hall and creation of surrounding deer park, the site was a medieval village consisting of 15 cottages, a windmill and dovecote. This area is now preserved as a Scheduled Ancient Monument in order to protect the surviving ridge and furrow.
In celebration of the Yorkshire Festival of Archaeology 2018, Burton Constable has teamed up with East Riding Archaeological Society (ERAS) to offer visitors hands-on geophysical sessions and the opportunity to view artefact displays from local excavations.
