Churchyard Secrets - the Film

An exhibition, a book and now a film 'Fewston Assemblage: Churchyard Secrets revealed'.

This absolutely fascinating 20 minute film can be viewed from the Churchyard Secrets page. And there's lots more on the project there too.

The film chronicles the whole Fewston Assemblage project starting with the excavation in 2009 and features interviews with archaeologists, volunteer researchers and academics. There were two surprises - instead of 50 sets of remains they found over 150, and instead of finding the remains of a local, rural population they found many remains of young people from London and cities in the North.
