Roman Road Research & Excavations
Excavations on the Winchester - London Roman Road will occur over the August Bank Holiday Weekend
in 2015, near Alton and Four Marks in Hants. There will be some weekends in September 2015, including in the fields depending on the harvest on features associated with the Roman Road, and dark circles in the fields.

Experienced and novice excavators welcome. A training course is available.
Excavations on the new Winchester - Chichester Roman Road occurred on Bank Holiday weekends from Easter - May. A greater area of the concrete found last year was uncovered, but it has been concluded it dates from the Victorian period and associated with the quarry and lime-works nearby. The Roman Road is a ledge cut into the chalk bedrock high above the concrete. Work may continue here if the harvest is late in September.
There will be field work on Roman Roads from Winchester to London and Chichester, generally on Saturdays or Sundays. To join the Email Field Programme, Email us through Contact Us button above.
