“This project has provided me with the confidence to seek out further archaeological fieldwork opportunities and to enrol with York Life Long Learning to undertake archaeological studies. With a view to completing an archaeological degree at some point in the near future. My family have lived in the Isle for many years, perhaps since 1600. This project has helped make some connection with these early family ties. Overall an excellent experience, very well organised. Many thanks to the archaeological team, who were very professional, knowledgeable and inspiring”
