Free Archaeology Open Day

Saturday 31 May 2014
Catterick Racecourse, North Yorkshire

Dear TAS Members and Friends,

This is a fantastic chance to see the archaeological work being undertaken in advance of improvements to the A1 Leeming to Barton phase. Many of you will be aware of the important Roman remains around Cataractonium. In a guided walk and site visit, TAS archaeologist Stephen Sherlock and English Heritage’s Neil Redfern will explain the latest discoveries in a landscape occupied for over 10,000 years. Once on site, Northern Archaeological Associates staff will show the progress and finds so far.

Watch out for TV coverage too!


Meet at Catterick Racecourse car park.
This event will provide a 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 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

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.

Kind Regards,

Spencer Carter | TAS Chair & eCommunications
