Tune in to our Facebook page on Thu 25 Feb at 1pm for our next online talk!

Hear archaeologist Ashley Tuck from Wessex Archaeology share his experience of working on a range of live archaeological sites. 

Ashley specialises in Industrial Archaeology and has worked on many sites across Sheffield including steel furnaces, worker’s housing and Sheffield Castle. In this talk, he will focus on some of the locations that feature in The Sheffield Project: Photographs of a Changing City.

Ashley says:

"All that remains of the locations in many of the exhibition photographs are a shade of their past meaning. These are spaces which we, as archaeologists, step into and part of our role is to provide a concrete narrative to replace the uncertainty.

"Many of the shots in the exhibition are personally evocative to me as they resemble sites that we have just stepped into where we are about to break ground.”

If you can’t make the live broadcast, the video will be available to watch later on our Facebook Live page or on our Museums Sheffield Live archive page.
