This is the new website for the Heritage Lottery funded Discovering Derventio community archaeology project:

These pages will be updated throughout the life of the project as we research the extent and significance of the Roman settlement at Papcastle in Cumbria. Here we will post images and reports from the archaeological surveys and excavations undertaken by our team of volunteers. Keep coming back to follow our discoveries or, better still, why not join us in ‘Discovering Derventio’?
