​Exhibition of archaeology student's work in Sheffield communities​

Five teams of second year Archaeology students have been working all over Sheffield to investigate varied aspects of the city's rich heritage.

Their research spans three millennia: from the Iron Age hillfort on Wincobank Hill, to Ruskin's little-known museum in Walkley, to the overgrown training camp used by Sheffield's First World War battalions.

The students have aimed to engage local communities with their heritage, such as on Skye's Edge, one of the city's most disadvantaged areas.

​One of the student teams worked with local volunteers to reveal the lost Victorian chapel at Wardsend Cemetery, a long-abandoned historic green space which the local community is trying to bring back from the brink of irreversible neglect.

The hard work of the students culminated in a public exhibition of their posters at the Jessop West Exhibition Space on campus.

Well done to all five teams.
