River Tees Rediscovered Booklet Downloads

 

   

 

   

The Tees Archaeology range of booklets are available as free pdf downloads. These include the now out of print Anglo-Saxon Teesside booklet. Other booklets in the series cover the Iron Age, Roman, Viking and Medieval periods.

 

The booklets are designed to give an overview of each period and are aimed at the general reader.

Anglo-Saxon Booklet Cover
   

Other booklets include 'Hunting the Hunter-Gatherers: Mesolithic Teesside'. This brings together information about the first people of Teesside during the Mesolithic Period (around 10,000 - 4,000 BC).

 

The booklet is aimed at the general reader and a series of reconstructions have been produced by local artist Nigel Dobbyn. You can download it free here and we have copies avaliable for sale in the shop.

   
Please visit our Downloads page to see what else we have to offer.
 

 

2020 UPDATE

As we are now in a period of transition from lockdown to something leading towards a new normal. We hope that you have all kept safe and have found the difficult times bearable, at least for most the weather was good.

 

Tees Archaeology staff have been working from home during these times as I am sure many of you have too. The exercise people have taken during lockdown has resulted in a number of requests for information and notification of new finds, we are very happy to have these.

 

New sites have also been identified through data gathered by our Volunteer Projects (thank you) Tees Archaeology database is looking rather healthy. 

 

Due to Covid-19 restrictions and access to the Tees Archaeology office, there may be a delay in processing publication orders . When at all possible please can you order via email to teesarchaeology@hartlepool.gov.uk or email to confirm an order has been sent by post. This will ensure your order can be dealt with. .

 

Coming up soon

We have been working on updating our booklet series, much of which is 20 years old and in black and white and these will be available to download free of charge soon.…

We are also thinking hard about future projects that we can work together on whilst also keeping to social distancing rules, please drop us an email with any suggestions…

 

Tees Archaeology Monograph Series Volume 7 is now available to order using the link here.

 

 

This is a companion to Volume 6 'A Royal Anglo Saxon Cemetery at Street House, Loftus'. Volume 7 describes the excavation of preceeding enclosures, buildings and industrial activity dating from the early Neolithic to the 4th century AD.

 

We have updated the page for the Skelton Townscape Heritage Scheme.

 

 

If you are tempted to go for a walk now that spring is around the corner, try the Battle of Piercebridge Trail created by Phil Philo (about an hour long).
