The ‘Great Yorkshire Way’
Between 2012–2014 staff from Wessex Archaeology’s Sheffield office undertook investigations along the 4.5 km-long course of a new road which revealed Iron Age and Roman remains near Rossington, South Yorkshire.
The Wessex Archaeology Heritage team have begun their initial phase of work at the Shugborough Estate, a National Trust property in Staffordshire. The site is rare in its completeness; the estate has survived with all major buildings including the mansion house, servants' quarters, historic farmyard and walled garden.
