Wessex Archaeology was privileged to have taken part in this year’s South Yorkshire Archaeology Day organised by South Yorkshire Archaeology Service, on Saturday 14 November. The day saw around 200 people join together to hear about local archaeological projects from the past year along with the Civic Mayors from all the South Yorkshire authorities. Wessex Archaeology’s senior project manager, Richard O’Neill, joined forces with Tinsley Meadow Primary School and Heeley City Farm to provide information on the recent Tinsley projects, whilst Lucy Dawson talked on the Lost Buildings of the Sheffield Inner Relief Road. 

In addition, other members of the Wessex Archaeology Sheffield team manned our stall, selling our recent publications, and organised activities with the Young Archaeologists’ Club. Further information can be found on Sheffield News Room.
