If you’ve been stimulated by BBC2’s History Cold Case tonight, and you want to get involved in a 10 week dig which will commence next week, then contact David Wandless on 01226 342 198.

Full details of the project will be announced shortly, which has only been made possible due to the Pontefract Friary Action Group’s campaign, which after two public meetings and negotiations with the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, has opened up the site for archaeological excavation.
