Yorkshire Division One is an English rugby union division, the seventh tier of the domestic competition, and the top level for local rugby union in Yorkshire. The champions are automatically promoted to North 1 East, a division with a wider geographical area which also encompasses north east England. The runners-up participates in a playoff against the 2nd place team from the equivalent regional league, Durham/Northumberland 1, for promotion to North 1 East. The bottom two clubs are relegated to Yorkshire 2.

Each season a team from Yorkshire 1 is picked to take part in the RFU Intermediate Cup - a national competition for clubs at level 7.

  • ✪ Excavations at Wetwang in Yorkshire (1/2)


What have we got in this one? Charcoal and soil samples. Have all the best bits, don't we? Bone. Species, human. East ditch. Human adult, femur, shaft right. Bone, south-west corner, Barrow Ditch. Bone, north-east corner, Barrow Ditch. Some of this will be pig bones and piglet bones, associated with the burial. And we're actually keeping some of this in silver foil in case we want to do any further C14 dating, so that there's less risk of contamination. Back in March, 2001, we had a call from an associate of the department saying that they'd found a large grave in Yorkshire, and it looked like it had some interesting metal objects in it. The Museum was really asked whether or not we could provide both the conservation expertise, because we knew there was going to be metal in there, and archaeological metals can be very difficult to lift and handle in the field, but also, really, to provide excavation support. So, in mid-March, 2001, I found myself heading for east Yorkshire and arrived on site to find that it was rather cold and wet. But that's the nature of British archaeology. When the Museum arrived, we were working in partnership with the Guildhouse Consultancy, who had done the rescue excavations on the site in advance of the build. But because of the tree preservation order and the moving of the road, this was seen – these were sort of emergencymeasures. So, English Heritage very kindly came forward and sponsored the excavation, the actual cost of running the excavation, as it was seen as an unforeseen archaeological discovery, and Hogg, the builders, who were the owners of the site and doing the development, before anything came out of the ground, agreed to donate everything to the Museum. The site itself, when we got there, was really quite restricted. It ended being, I suppose, about ten metres square, but partly truncated by the road. The grave cut itself, well, it actually expands as you go down because there's been compression on the soil, but it ended up being about three and a half metres long by about two and a half metres wide at its widest point, slightly sort of boat-shaped, really. And respecting very much the site of the fixtures of the chariot that went in there. The original excavation team comprised of supervisor and director of Guildhouse Consultancy and one further excavator. The Museum was able to bring up two further excavators, as well as myself, and then we were supplemented with other personnel from the Museum who had specialist skills. So, we were able to bring up two metals conservators, to help lift the material when we got to that stage. We also had the use of a specialist illustrator for planning purposes. One of my colleagues, Tony Posito, was using a ground magnetometer, which looks for variation in the magnetic variation in the soil, which will allow even the slightest disturbance to show up. This is also very good, of course, because it's magnetic, and looking for metal, which has a very clear signal. Once metal had been located, as it was in the case of this grave, we were then able to use a variety of metal detectors to ascertain exactly the scale of those pieces. But it's very useful to put as many techniques over the site before you start to excavate, as you can. We didn't have the advantage that, perhaps now, one might use, for example, ground penetration radar, which would give you instantly a three-dimensional idea of what's happening under the ground. But that wasn't available way back then, six years ago. And, of course, the other key member, although non-digging, was the overnight security. Because, when you're working on a site like this, word gets out very quickly, but you need to have somebody there, because the evidence is all about absolute detail. From the excavation itself, relating to the burial, we had the iron fittings of the chariot, and also supplemented at the yoke end with the bronze terrets, the rein rings, which also had coral decoration on them. All traces of the timber had disappeared, but it had left in places some very interesting soil changes, not just colour. We're used to seeing colour in archaeology but, in this case, because the grave was rather strangely filled with clay, we actually had a few voids, which meant that we were able to take plaster casts of these voids, showing the shape of some of the pieces of timber. There it is in all its glory. You can see, here's the limit, actually, of the original Iron Age piece of wood, showing in the ground, coming along through here, on that side, and back along this edge. And then, of course, there's the bone of the human skeleton.
