A1 Upgrade — Archaeology Day Saturday 31st May 2014

Many of you will be aware that the upgrades to the A1 are continuing further north and the archaeologists are investigating along the route. Further south there have been many exciting finds including the Romano-British settlement at Wattle Syke and the Roman Fort at Roecliffe.

On Saturday 31st May 2014, there will be an Archaeological Day at the Catterick Racecourse car park. This will provide a fantastic first-hand opportunity to see one of the excavation sites where digging has been taking place prior to the construction of the A1 Leeming to Barton Scheme.

 • Guided walks led by Stephen Sherlock and Neil Redfern will leave at hourly intervals between 10:30 am and 3:30 pm

• Walks will cross rough ground so suitable footwear is required

• There will be opportunity to view finds from the recent excavations, and NAA staff will be on site to explain their work

Whilst this will be a free event, there will be a charity bucket available, should

anyone wish to make a donation to the Great North Air Ambulance.
