Roman Road Research & Excavations
North East Hants Historical and Archaeological Society
Field Archaeology Branch
Easter - August 2018
Excavations on the new Winchester - Chichester Roman Road will occur on Bank Holiday weekends from Easter - August 2018. Three sites have been established where substantial remains have been found. In addition, evidence has been found at each excavation of a Roman settlement, and work will be undertaken on these. In the current site, where one of the Roman Road lanes enters the LIDAR grid of what we think is the Roman settlement of Clausentum, a large amount of pottery and tiles have been found.
Annual membership £10.
Persons participating in the training exercise will be charged an additional £70 and must purchase and read the training manual at £6. To complete the exercises, you are likely to need to book for at least 5 days in total between March & August - though you can carry this on to next year. Those helping with a site set-up will have a discount on the training fee.
