What followed over the next two years was a lot of hard physical work by many volunteers but the outcomes have been superb. The site was very productive. Over 13,000 artefacts were discovered mainly from the target period of the 11th Century, following the Norman Conquest and the granting of Fryston to the new Benedictine Abbey at Selby, through to the late Victorian period at the start of the 20th Century. Some of the discoveries enabled us to piece together other elements of the unrecorded history of our village.
All aspects of the project are captured in the Project Report which contains 75 illustrations and 16 maps in the report itself plus a lot more in the 8 Appendices.
We have printed a few extra so if anyone else would like a copy please do not hesitate to get in touch with Ray or any Monk Fryston Time Team member.
