VISIT TO SKIPSEA CASTLE EXCAVATIONS - WEDNESDAY 29 MAY 2024

For members taking part in the visit to Skipsea Castle Excavations on Wednesday there is parking at Skipsea Village Hall car park. Please all meet there at 2 pm. Wear appropriate footwear and clothing for possible inclement conditions and uneven ground. It was a fabulous visit last year so it will be fantastic to find out how things have progressed since then. Have a lovely afternoon!

FIELD STUDIES - CHANGED TO WEDNESDAY 10 APRIL 2024

DUE TO ILLNESS CHRIS HANNARD HAS KINDLY STEPPED IN TO TALK ABOUT METAL DETECTING AND THE ROLE OF THE PORTABLE ANTIQUITIES SCHEME (PAS). HE WILL ALSO BE BRINGING SOME OF HIS INCREDIBLE EAST YORKSHIRE FINDS. DON'T MISS THIS!!!!

Please note that our Field Studies will take place on WEDNESDAY 10 APRIL and NOT 3 April, the date it normally would be. This is to ensure our Field Studies Officer is back from holiday to host an evening on practical photogrammetry in archaeology. We look forward to seeing you there at 7.30 pm at St Nicholas Parish Rooms, Holmechurch Lane, Beverley. Please take the steps to the left - and our room is on the right hand side at the top of the stairs. 


LECTURE SEASON ANNOUNCEMENT

Hopefully members will have received their Autumn newsletter giving details of the lecture programme from September 2023 through to April 2024. Lectures are also published on our events page. We are grateful to everybody who has agreed to give up their time and expertise to present their work to our members.

All lectures take place in LT1, Wilberforce Building, The University of Hull, Cottingham Road, Hull. Entry is free for ERAS members and £2 for visiting guests.

We also stream the lectures digitally but this is available to ERAS members only. An email will be sent before the lecture with the relevant code needed to view the presentation so please make sure we have an up to date email address.

We very much look forward to seeing you all at our first lecture on Wednesday 20 September at 7.30 pm.


FIELD STUDIES - SCORBOROUGH IRON AGE CEMETERY

Our next Field Studies trip is to Scorborough Iron Age Square Barrow cemetery on Wednesday 2 August. The landowner has been kind enough to allow us access to these important and impressive funerary monuments. Hopefully the weather will be kind to us as the late sunlight of a Summer evening will highlight the upstanding earthworks perfectly! If ERAS members would like to join us we are meeting at 7.15 on the Scorborough Lane off the A164, parking on the verges beyond Scorborough church. Please dress for the expected weather conditions and wear sturdy footwear.
