Time Travelling around Kirkleatham Village

School children are being given the chance to become time travellers and explore Kirkleatham Village to find evidence that links the area to the Second World War, the 18th century and as far back as medieval times.

The educational journey begins with a week of archaeological, environmental and historic activities, starting on Monday, October 15, and is expected to stretch several years.

The Kirkleatham Village Archaeology Project is a partnership between Redcar and Cleveland Council's countryside and museums services, Tees Archaeology and the local community.

The work makes a perfect link to the National Big Draw Week, as Kirkleatham Museum hosts The Big Archaeology Draw for all the family on Sunday, October 14, from 10am-3pm.

Throughout the following week, schools are being encouraged to spend a morning or afternoon with the project, helping with the series of excavations and investigations around the village, looking for evidence from three main periods.
