It's been a while, but things are starting to get moving again with the Binchester project. We are beginning to make arrangements for our fifth season - our Durham students will begin in early June and the US and public groups will begin in early July. Hopefully the weather will be a little better than last years was...
In the meantime to whet you appetites I want to advertise an exhibition about Binchster that has been pulled together by 3rd year students here at Durham who are taking our Museum Studies module. Binchester Exposed will be on at the Old Fulling Mill Museum here in Durham- openingon May 1st and running until 2nd June. Do try and visit if you can and let us know what you think of it.
This blog will share information about the major new field project at the Roman fort of Binchester (Co. Durham), run jointly by Durham County Council, the Dept. of Archaeology, Durham University, Vinovia.org, Texas Tech University and the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland. It will communicate news, events, and once the field season starts a daily update of the discoveries on site. To find out more visit our website
