The talks will provide an overview of recent and ongoing projects, including archaeological work in response to development within the City, new research into the City’s Roman past, management of the City Walls as well as the new visitor experience and interpretation at Clifford’s Tower.

York Museums Trust will also be bringing along some of the engagement tools developed as part of their current Ryedale Hoard exhibition.
