Take a glimpse of the past while at North Yorkshire hotels
Residents of hotels in North Yorkshire will be able to gain a fascinating insight into their surroundings through a number of free historical events over the coming weeks.
Over recent years, a number of archaeological finds have been made at the Iron Age hillfort in the North York Moors National Park, with experts keen to share them with the wider public.
On March 30th at 19:30 BST, Dominic Powlesland from the Landscape Research Centre will be appearing at the Sutton Bank National Park Centre to explain more about the dig.
Jennifer Smith, from the Lime and Ice project, which supported the excavations, said: "The dramatic escarpment of Sutton Bank is one of the most visited places in the North York Moors but there are many other places with interesting tales to tell in the surrounding area."
Earlier this year, visitors to the region were informed that parking charges in the area would remain at £2.20 per two hours, but a maximum £4 fee has now been introduced.
