Family Event
Sun 22nd July 2018 to Sun 22nd July 2018
Yorkshire Festival of Archaeology 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.

Family Handling Activities & Hands-on Geophysical Survey Sessions

Saturday 14th & Sunday 22nd July - 11am to 4pm

Afternoon tea was created by the Duchess of Bedford in the late 18th century. She invited friends to join her for an afternoon meal of small cakes, bread and butter sandwiches, sweets and, of course, tea. The practice was so popular that it was quickly adopted by other social hostesses
