The West Yorkshire Archaeology Advisory Service is holding its thirteenth annual Archaeological Day School, returning to the spectacular venue of the Royal Armouries, Leeds, on Saturday 24th November, 2012.
In the morning programme representatives from West Yorkshire Archaeological Advisory Service will bring delegates up to date with the results of recent archaeological work in West Yorkshire, covering historic buildings, industrial archaeology and other excavations and fieldwork. There will also be an update from the Historic Landscape Characterisation Officer.
Our afternoon programme will address the recent work of the Portable Antiquities Scheme's West & South Yorkshire Finds Liaison Officer and we will hear from Site Director, Simon Tomson about the fascinating work undertaken by Pontefract and District Archaeological Society on St Richard's Dominican Friary excavations. We also welcome back potter John Hudson who will be demonstrating traditional pottery making styles in his indomitable way. The programme for the day is available here.
There will also be exhibitions from a number of local organisations and societies, and delegates will benefit from a voucher for 20% off items in the Royal Armouries gift shop, valid on the day of the event only.
