Happy Christmas from Binchester

Happy Christmas from all of us at the Binchester project. We have had a fantastic year in 2014. In the field our highlights have included revealing more of the incredibly well-preserved Roman bath-house and its associated remains. We now have on of the best surviving Roman buildings from the Northern frontier. We also had wonderful finds, including an extremely exciting early Christian ring, which is  rare example of evidence of early Christianity from Northern England. Plans are well underway for our final season of excavation in the summer of 2015.
I'd also like to extend a special thanks to all those who signed our petition earlier this year to help secure the future of the site. We were overwhelmed with the support we received from across the world. Your enthusiasm did the job, and the site was sold to the Auckland Castle Trust. This will help ensure the site has a long-term future, and we look forward to working with the Trust on their future plans for Vinovia.
