YORK Museums Trust are inviting residents to take part in a community research project to uncover the history of Hull Road.

The heritage project, entitled Heritage Hunters, partners the trust with residents of Hull Road, Layerthorpe, to research into the historic Roman route from York to Brough to discover how people once lived.

The first session will be at York Castle Museum, where those interested have the opportunity to learn how to uncover historic stories, then a workshop led by York Explore.

This will be followed by a library visit with an archivist to look into collections related to your local area.

Philip Newton, communities engagement researcher at York Museums Trust, said: “To take part in the project you don’t need any researching experience, just enthusiasm for finding out more about where you live. It’s great to be able to offer people a chance to find out more their local area, and to give people the opportunity to learn and develop skills in historical research.

“We hope people are keen to get involved, find the research fun and interesting and meet new people along the way.”
