Archaeological investigations at Aldborough continue, with the Aldborough Roman Town Project (University of Cambridge) carrying out excavations. Led by Dr Rose Ferraby and Professor Martin Millett, the project aims to understand more about the history of the town and its people, and its role in the Roman north. In recent years the excavations have focused on the north of the town, revealing elements of industry and trade.
During the festival, Dr Rose Ferraby will lead a tour around the village and museum site, exploring the traces of the Roman town. The Tour will last approximately two hours. (Please wear sturdy footwear suitable for walking).
Whilst the tour is free, please book a place online.
