Our next talk will be held on Tuesday, 22nd September, 2020 at 7pm on Zoom. This event will be recorded.

Bookings for this event on Zoom will be made available on Eventbrite.

The talk, entitled “The Discovery of Domesday Pontefract”, will be given by Eric Houlder.

The excavations carried out in the eastern part of Pontefract over the last quarter of a century have provided significant new information about the pre-Conquest settlement; the evidence providing a compelling case for Pontefract having been not only the site of the documented royal villa, but also that of an Anglo-Saxon minster.
