 This is an exciting opportunity for children to explore the history of Sunderland from Roman times through to the industrial development of the river and city

When – 23rd October to the 3rd  November

Where – Ferry Boat Lane, south of Wessington Way, North Hylton

What – We will be field walking and metal detecting, and excavating test pits on the site of cropmarks

Why – to identify crop marks seen across the field in an aerial photograph

The first phase of the project at South Hylton in mid-August revealed evidence of the local industrial past of North and South Hylton, and lots of pottery!
