‘Quite soon it was recognised as one of the best societies of its kind, certainly in Yorkshire and arguably in Britain. It pioneered cooperative projects with the cadres of professional archaeologists that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s. It chalked up a long list of important excavations and discoveries, developing building recording and site investigation when these were urgently needed in the rapidly re- developing historic town. It carried out a remarkable programme of research excavations around its area and began to attract national awards for excellence, and national coverage of its excavations.’

Founder member Don Lodge continued visiting the Society’s projects to within a few weeks of his death. Here he is seen being shown the Tanners’ Row site by distinguished member Tony Wilmott, the Director.
