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 March 2019 comprising two trenches (Trenches 8 and 9). We are pleased to share our archaeological and general photographs relating to this part of the project below.
