Archaeological Report on the Old London Road, Towton

In 2016, Tim Sutherland as part of the Towton Battlefield Archaeology Project, with the help of volunteers from the TBS undertook an archaeological survey on a part of what is known as “The Old London Road” at Towton. What is now a bridleway on the edge of the battlefield has been in use as a local highway from at least Medieval times, possibly Roman, and with the local name of “Old London Road” has always been something of a enigma to local historians.

Tim’s report makes interesting reading, containing excerpts of ancient maps and other history as well as the mechanics of a modern archaeological survey. Please click on the link.
