Join us to find out how recent excavations beneath the cathedral have developed ideas based on earlier archaeological work. Ian Milstead, Field Officer at YAT, who directed the recent excavations at York Minster, will reveal new evidence of York's landscape before the Minster was built.
Ian is from Orkney, but has lived in England for 20 years. As a Field Officer at YAT he has worked extensively in York, and directed the recent excavations at York Minster. His particular interest is the transition from the Roman to the early medieval period.
