Pocklington excavations win national award

  • Posted On: 2 March 2018

A prestigious archaeological award for Rescue Project of the Year 2018 has gone to MAP Archaeological Practice Ltd for their work on the Iron Age chariot burial at Pocklington. Excavations at Pocklington, East Yorkshire, revealed an Iron Age square barrow. Remarkably, the shallow grave contained the immaculately preserved remains of a chariot, its owner, as well as two ponies artfully arranged alongside the chariot.

More details, and the shortlisted projects, are here.
