Scarborough Archaeological and Historical Society will host a talk entitled Saxons, Vikings and Normans in the Tees Valley on Monday.

This talk will examine the development of Medieval Settlement in the Tees Valley, looking first at the evidence of the Saxon and Viking occupation of the area, examining the impact of the Norman Conquest and the subsequent development of the

Medieval Settlement of the area.

The talk will draw on both archaeological and documentary information to paint as clear a picture as possible of the making of the settlement skeleton of the modern area.

Robin Daniels will be presenting the talk and is head of Tees Archaeology, the local authority archaeology service for the lower Tees Valley.

The lecture starts at 7.30pm in the Library and Information Centre, Vernon Road, Scarborough.
