Welcome to anyone who has found their way to our blog after seeing the site on Digging for Britain. As you will have seen from the television, we had a spectacular year at Binchester and have uncovered fantastic remains from the Roman fort and civilian settlement.
As with many large-scale research excavations we are not in the field over the winter. However, we are already making plans for our final season's work at the site this summer. We'll be back out on site at the beginning of June, when we'll be updating our blog everyday, and continuing our first baby steps with video diaries.
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
