Archaeology North Duffield(AND) was formed in 2009 within the structure of North Duffield Conservation and Local History Society.

Archaeology North Duffield (AND)

The aims are to investigate the archaeology of the village by means of landscape characterisation, archaeological fieldwork and studies of aerial photographs and cropmark transitions. Of particular importance, are attempts to involve local people in investigating and caring for their local heritage and introducing more people, especially children, to archaeology.

Some members of the Society have been engaged in archaeology for some time and this includes both retired ex-archaeologists as well as amateurs.

In addition, considerable professional archaeological expertise is available though links with York Archaeological Trust, York University, the Council for British Archaeology and other local archaeological and historical societies.

Interest in archaeology was aroused when a piece of Roman greyware was found in a local garden, the first indication of a history stretching back beyond the Norman Conquest.

To find out how this has evolved, about our Heritage Lottery Funding, three year Historic Landscape Project and more, please see under separate sub-menus.
