Move Underway

The visit of the East Riding Dialect Society on the 16th June was the last visit to take place at our current premises.

Work is already underway on the new site at Green Lane which will open in March 2017.  Keep checking back here for updates on progress and perhaps for sneak previews of the new exhibitions.

Rod Mackey

We are sad to report the death on 7th June of Rod Mackey, Vice Chairman of the East Riding Archaeological Society and an outstanding local archaeologist.  Rod practiced archaeology for many decades at sites all over this area but also further afield including continental Europe and  South America.  He was a source of great knowledge which he freely shared with so many people including those of us lucky enough to study under him at Hull University or to work on his digs.  He will be greatly missed.

Rod passed away peacefully after a struggle with cancer. The funeral service (a non-religious ceremony) will be held on Wednesday  the 22nd June in Beverley Minster, then burial in Queensgate Cemetery followed by a meet up in the Monks’s Walk Pub.
