Since we were awarded a Heritage Lottery grant, we have worked towards sharing our projects in the community and the wider archaeological and historical community, and an integral part of our strategy was to create a web site.

We appointed TPM++ to create and manage our site- and we have been delighted with the support we have received and the results speak for themselves. Since the website went 'live' in June 2012 there have been 1653 people who have made 2286 visits to the site viewing almost 9000 pages in the process. (Data as at 14th March 2013)

Furthermore, the servicing and continuing development of the site by TPM++ ensures that we stay up-to-date, continually monitoring, revising and improving. With the help of TPM++ we now have a better understanding of  how web sites work, and thus, 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.

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.
