Wessex Archaeology was commissioned by Videotext Communications Ltd to undertake a programme of archaeological recording and post-excavation work on an archaeological evaluation undertaken by Channel 4’s ‘Time Team’ at Skipsea Grange, Skipsea, Holderness, East Riding of Yorkshire, centred on NGR 517400 455000. Skipsea Grange lies one mile to the south east of the village of Skipsea, alongside the main road south to Hornsea, and some ten miles to the south of the town of Bridlington.
A magnetic survey undertaken by GSB Prospection Ltd has identified a plethora of anomalies associated with a settlement and field system complex that extends over an area of more than six hectares. Indeed, it was not possible to establish the full extents of the site in the time available.
