This month’s lecture will be on the River Tees Rediscovered Project. This brilliant project focuses on the archaeology of the River Tees and surrounding areas. It considers the social heritage of the area and also protects and preserves the landscape, allowing for different projects to make the area more easily accessible and enjoyable. As a Heritage Lottery Funded project, there have been several archaeological excavations. Sites include: Egglescliffe and Dalton-on-Tees and the most recent, in 2017, at Piercebridge. At this talk, Robin will speak about the results of the project so far and what exciting things the future has in store for River Tees Rediscovered.
Robin Daniels is currently the Archaeology Officer for Tees Archaeology, having been appointed Head of Archaeology in 1991. Tees Archaeology provides archaeological services to the local authorities and people of Hartlepool and Stockton-on-Tees. Robin is responsible for its direction.
