Dalton Parlours: The Archaeology of a West Yorkshire Landscape

Synopsis
Demonstrates the social and historic development of two hectares of farming land at Dalton Parlours near Wetherby in West Yorkshire, as revealed by an excavation conducted by the Archaeology Unit of West Yorkshire Metropolitan County Council. The use of on site photography during the excavation, complemented by graphic and model reconstructions, shows what life was like there during the Iron Age, in Roman times and in the Anglo-Saxon period. The archaeological evidence is interpreted by Prof Glanville Jones of Leeds University and Prof Barri Jones of Manchester University.
