THE ESTON HILLS dominate today’s industrial landscape of the Tees estuary and the rugged coastline of north-east England. The community moors, wetlands and woodlands are a wildlife haven that also bear testament to human endeavour since the end of the last Ice Age – 12,000 years ago.
ICE AND FIRE is a community project which aims to explore, record and celebrate the evidence for over ten thousand years of human life, death, ingenuity and persistence. Our project is funded by Heritage Lottery North-East and Teesside Archaeological Society, with support from many organizations.
“Thanks again for having me on the project, I had a great time, such an interesting place, really interesting archaeology, and what a great team!” – Richard Stonehouse
