Discover the prehistory of Eston Hills with archaeologist Adam Mead and Forensic Anthropologist, Dave Errickson. Explore the traces of early human activity. This free guided walk will show archaeological sites including those uncovered in this year’s Heritage Lottery funded ICE AND FIRE project — shortlisted for a 2017 national community archaeology award.

There will also be the chance to view and handle some of the recent finds!
This ongoing project aims to explore, record and celebrate the evidence for over 10,000 years of human life, death, ingenuity and persistence in a fragile community landscape.
The walk may not be suitable for some people due to the rough terrain and a steep incline to the top of the hills. Strong, stout shoes or boots are a must with the usual advice to bring waterproof clothing, and plenty of liquid refreshment. Toilet facilities are located in the Flatts Lane visitor centre. Dogs and difficult husbands should be kept on a lead please.
