Talks about Celebrancy in general with some interesting stories

Tony Metcalfe is a founder member of Altogether Archaeology and spoke to us in February about this independent archaeology group.  

They undertake fieldwork and research in the upland areas of the northern Pennines and most  of his talk focused on their recent excavations and findings up Teesdale at Holwick.  

Tony had brought with him a selection of finds which he referred to as he talked and we were able to look at and handle.  We were amazed how small some of the items were and wondered how they had been noticed in the soil!
