THE FIRST FIELDWORK SEASON in the summer of 2017 has exceeded all expectations across our many activities – geophysical surveys, wetland coring, test pit excavations with features and truly exceptional finds. With thanks to our supporters, not least Heritage Lottery North-East, and enthusiastic community volunteers, we are delighted to release our free-to-download 2018 Interim Report:

ICE AND FIRE | The Eston Hills Rescue Archaeology Project: A Community Project in Redcar & Cleveland, North Yorkshire »

ISBN 978-1-5272-2274-8 | Published 2018 by TimeVista Archaeology, London, UK

PDF Download, A4 88pp + 4pp covers, colour illustrations throughout. A Lithics Analysis Catalogue is available as PDF and Excel formats – see below, links are provided in the report too.


We hope to receive funding to print hard-copy books for distribution within the community. We’re also planning a museum display of finds, previous material from Eston Hills as well our recent discoveries, at Kirkleatham Museum. Additionally, we’d like to have a display of hands-on “feel free to touch” replica artefacts and 3D-printed finds, at the Flatts Lane Country Park Centre – news to follow, our pottery and flint-knapping artisan friends are ready to help!
