Welcome to the Wolds Research Project

The Wolds Research Project was established in 2002. It brings together a number of departmental staff in a multi-period research project focussed on a rich archaeological landscape in the environs of the City of York. This web site will evolve as the results of specific sub-projects are added to it. Currently it sets out the overall goals of the project and its sub-themes and provides partial results for the Wharram area.
