Fragments of Archaeology and Glimpses of History in the Landscapes of the North York Moors

 Interesting places to visit, places to stay, good walks in the North York Moors National Park

Often nothing spectacular, but small prehistoric archaeological and historic items occasionally appear in the landscape when out walking over the tracks and heather-bracken clad moorland the North Yorkshire, or cycling or motoring along the quiet country roads of the dales. These items should make you think of life in the North Yorkshire Moors tens, hundreds or thousands of years ago. There are also many churches and other buildings in the towns and villages stretching back over 1000 years of history and archaeology items well worth pausing for a visit.
