The Archaeology of East Marton: Captain Cook's Birthplace
Produced by Peter Rowe, Sites and Monuments Record Officer for The Tees.
If you want to know more about the results of the archaeological study of Marton described by Cliff Thornton recently [see Cook's Log page 1408, vol. 21, no. 1 (1998)], then you will want to buy this nine page booklet.
The study was successful in identifying the plans of the former settlement and revealing the locations of a number of properties through a combination of excavation, survey work and geo-magnetic prospection. Among the illustrations are an extract from the 1804 plan of the area, and an overlay of this plan onto a modern one. There is an explanation of the two separate settlements of East and West Marton, as well as the rise and demise of Marton Lodge and Marton Hall.
