Harewood House origins found by student archaeologists


Hundreds of artefacts dating from the Middle Ages to the 18th Century have been discovered by archaeology students working at Harewood House in Leeds.
The students, from York University, have excavated the remains of Gawthorpe Hall, a medieval manor in the grounds of what is now Harewood House.
The items found include a 15th Century coin and an 18th Century chamber pot.
It is hoped the finds will give fresh insight into the origins of Harewood House, which was finished in 1771.
Gawthorpe Hall was demolished by 1773, its remaining traces filled with rubble and covered with turf.
