Cawood Finds DayVenue: Cawood. 10 June 2006
Even though we clashed with the first England match in the world cup series, we had a good turn out for the finds day. We were really pleased with the response from the village and we found a range of items from several centuries. This included some second century roman pottery and a 13th century lead seal.

Molehill finds dayVenue: Cawood School. 18 October 2005
School children helped our experts wash and examine the finds they had seen on the Sept 04 Mole hill sift day. The children also learnt about the types of evidence people living at different types in history would have left as clues to the way they lived.
Earth works survey weekendVenue: Cawood. 9 October 2005
Fans of Channel 4â€™s Time Team will know the value of the work of â€˜Landscape Detectiveâ€™ Stewart Ainsworth, whether the site under investigation is a prehistoric camp, a medieval abbey or a downed Second World War bomber. Over the weekend of 8th-9th October, three of Stewartâ€™s English Heritage colleagues led a weekend of training in field survey for our Group. They opened our eyes to recognise and interpret archaeological evidence visible with the naked eye, and sometimes staring us in the face. And they showed us how to record what we saw, using a range of techniques from high-tech satellite mapping to simple, old-fashioned taped survey.
