EXPLORING THE ARCHAEOLOGY OF YORKSHIRE LANDSCAPES: 

A conference inspired by Tony Pacitto (1931 - 2003) - archaeologist, photographer, air photographer, excavator, geophysicist and metal detectorist

Organised by the Prehistory Research Section of the Yorkshire Archaeological and Historical Society, in association with the University of Hull and East Riding Archaeological Society, ERAS. 

Papers will focus on landscapes within the East Riding of Yorkshire and parts of North Yorkshire, reviewing techniques for revealing archaeological sites from prehistory through to the medieval period. There will be some new insights into Iron Age chariot burials and the later prehistoric settlement of the Wolds.
