Wednesday 6th May at 7.30 pm
Sally Rodgers, community heritage Archaeologist at Heeley city farm will be giving a talk about the project at Tinsley Manor.
Exploring Tinsley Manor is a three years Lottery Funded Project. It was initiated by Tinsley Primary School who had been researching the history of their school site and found maps showing that there was a Medieval Manor House under their school field.
There are significant archaeological remains in situ. We have learned a lot about the site however, the excavations took place during term time and involved the whole school as well as visitors and volunteers.
Because we were working with 15 different children on site every half hour progress was slow. There is more to be discovered. We would like to finish excavation on this site. With the new developments due to take place with the demolition of the current school and reuse of the site as a public amenity the only opportunity to study this is in detail will be post demolition pre re-use.
