Roman Road Research & Excavations

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 our current site, where one of our 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, together with the rammed chalk of the grid, and the Roman Road lane beyond it. In the August 2018 excavation we will uncover a length of this street grid, and its northern edge. See this Site's Page.

Experienced and novice excavators welcome. A training course is available.

Fieldwork over the Autumn, Winter and Spring

There will be field work on Roman Roads from Winchester to London and Chichester, generally on Saturdays or Sundays. The Chichester Road survey has reached the Meon Valley and Old Winchester Hill. It was found that the Iron Age Hill Fort there had extensive outer defences. We are now looking at Caesar's Camp near Farnham - where similar evidence has been found - See the Caesar's Camp page.

New Projects

New Project launched is Roman Road Winchester - Chichester which is being mapped from Winchester to the county boundary. It is turning out to be a huge two or three lane highway. Excavations started towards Winchester in 2014. Other Roman Roads round Winchester are being examined - some are showing multi-lanes. Visit the New Projects site for details of these and others - and sign-up for projects which interest you. See the Projects and Contact Us Buttons at the top of the page.
