Hidden Context TV - Revealing the Past in the Present - Community Archaeologist of the Year, Dr Jon Kenny, presents short films revealing the archaeology, history and heritage of Yorkshire. Each week we will bring you a couple of short films, some will stand alone and some will be episodes that build into longer programmes. 1066, The Battle of Fulford is brought to you as a series of 11 short films that together form a 45 minute feature telling the story of the 2015 dig at Germany Beck, York. This part of the world is brimming over with places of historical importance so there is no shortage of suitable subjects for us to cover.

The Heritage Lottery Fund and the players of the Heritage Lottery Fund


Since we were awarded our first Heritage Lottery grant, we have worked towards making all that we do available to the local and the wider community. An integral part of our strategy was to create a web site.

We appointed TPM++ to submit proposals for the design and service of our web site, and we have been delighted with the support that we received. The website was a tremendous success and resulted in thousands of ‘hits’ over the period of its creation in 2011. It generated numerous queries and many requests for genealogy information from our records which were happy to respond to with information whenever we could. That support continues to this day with TPM++ maintaining the high standard of our website and, indeed, working towards a new, fresh and exciting version soon to be released on an unsuspecting public.

The guidance provided by TPM++ has helped us to understand how web sites work, and to maximise our exposure. The responsive service we get is excellent, keeping the site up to date.

We continually strive to add good, relevant content, in a structured manner.

Feedback received about the web site, and the analysis of visitor trends supports our belief that our choice  of TPM++ was well founded.
