Day school plan to teach Yorkshire history
10:00am Monday 23rd September 2013 in News
A day school focusing on Yorkshire’s rich history takes place at Royal Armouries, Leeds and includes work done to teach youngsters more about their heritage.
The event showcases fieldwork projects such as the “My Place” heritage project which taught pupils from 20 Bradford and Keighley schools about their community through archaeology excavations at two historic landmarks – Bolling Hall in Bradford and Cliffe Castle in Keighley.
Councillor Val Slater, chairman of the Joint Services Committee which oversees the work of the Archaeology Advisory Service, and who will be making the welcome address at the event, said: “The Day School is the ideal opportunity for members of the public to find out about the wide array of recent archaeological discoveries in West Yorkshire and put any questions to the experts.
“It is now celebrating its 14th year, which just goes to show how highly the people of West Yorkshire value their heritage.
“It appeals to people from all walks of life.”
Some tickets are still available at £15 per person, and anyone interested can see more details and book online at www.archaeology.wyjs.org.uk. Or, contact Marianne James on (0113) 3939824.
