Following on from the Time Team investigation at Binchester Roman Fort in 2007, a major research project was initiated last year, concentrating initially on an area in the interior of the fort, the south east gateway and an area in the civil settlement. The Society was involved from the outset, and members took part in the 2009 community excavation and have recently participated in post excavation finds processing.
From 5 July to 13August 2010, there will be a chance for society members to join the community excavation again. The cost will be £5 for members, or £20 (including A.A.S.D.N. membership) for non-members. Volunteers are expected to commit for a minimum of three, or preferably five consecutive days. Prior booking is essential, for which contact David Mason, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
