Bronze Age finds in Silsden
. David Williams and Rosie Scales (ASYAS)

In 2017 an excavation in Silsden by Archaeological Services WYAS uncovered unexpected Bronze Age finds.  Dave Williams and Rosie Scales share information on the background to the dig and on the finds uncovered as well as answering questions such as: How many archaeologists does it take to lift a 3000 year-old urn?  And what do you do when a load of
travellers gate-crash your site?

Dave and Rosie are both professional archaeologists who have been involved in a wide variety of excavations.
