Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

Open Day at East Wear Bay

We’ve almost reached ‘half term’ at the East Wear Bay field school, with two more weeks to go.  Visitors are always welcome, and on Wednesday 3rd August we will be holding an Open Day, so please do come along and see how we’ve been getting on.

Our students and volunteers have been busy uncovering more of the late Iron Age/early Roman quern production floor discovered last year.  At least twenty discarded broken querns in varying stages of manufacture have come to light.  The manufacturing area lies over the drip gully of an Iron Age round-house – the arc visible in the second drone shot below.
