Volunteers dig for history
ARCHAEOLOGISTS searching for the ruins of an Anglo-Saxon castle at North End Park, Driffield, have unearthed Roman and medieval remains.
Driffield archaeologist Simon Weaver has been commissioned by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to carry out a dig in a bid to form a greater understanding of the area.

The team of volunteers, who have been working since last Wednesday, have already uncovered plain-coloured shards of Roman and medieval pottery and found what they believe could be ruins of a late-Norman tower.
