The Roads to the Past (RTTP) project was a National Lottery Heritage Fund volunteer community archaeology and history project, run as a partnership between the Thornton-le-Street History Group and Solstice Heritage. The fieldwork took place between July 2017 and March 2019 and comprised both test-pitting and open-area excavation by volunteers under professional archaeological supervision to investigate the area in and around the shrunken medieval village of Thornton-le-Street, North Yorkshire.

The archaeological fieldwork we undertook in May/June and August 2018 comprised the excavation of four test pits and seven trenches. We are pleased to share our archaeological and general photographs relating to this part of the project below.
