A Visitor's Guide to Archaeological Sites in West Yorkshire
West Yorkshire has a rich and varied archaeological heritage which ranges from Mesolithic flint scatters on the Pennine uplands to the industrial and later heritage of our town centres. Whether you’re a visitor to the region or someone out to explore their own locality, West Yorkshire has something to interest you.
To help you find the best sites to visit we have provided a series of guides which will help you get the best out of the places you visit. Each guide contains a brief history of the site where known, and outline of what you will see on the site and links to other sources of information. Just click on the links below. All the guides are downloadable as pdfs so that you can take them with you when you make your visit.
This webpage is a developing resource and more guides will be added in the future as time and budget constraints allow.
