Project: The Northern Frontier, living with the Romans

Investigating a 2nd-3rd century roundhouseOver the last few years, Vindomora Solutions Ltd have been involved in a number of projects examining various elements of the Roman Frontier. These investigations have taken the form of desk-based assessments, heritage impact statements, monitoring and watching brief work, archaeological evaluation and full site mitigation, as well as community project supervision.

We’ve looked at a large proportion of a large scale settlement near Durham, inside sections of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland and Cumbria to see what’s original and what is nineteenth century reconstruction – more recently we’ve also uncovered a section of the Vallum and potential vicus material from a site in the west end of Newcastle upon Tyne. 2019 will also hopefully see a return to Swaledale in North Yorkshire to aid the Swaledale and Arkengarthdale Archaeology Group’s excavation of a Romano-British farmstead.

Recently excavated findsAll of these projects provide a fascinating insight into the day-to-day lives of folk in the Roman and Romano-British periods and it is still astounding at how well preserved many of the artefacts still are to this day. Hopefully our research and fieldwork will help to shed a little extra light on the lives of the normal people from that time, not just the might of the Roman military as many concentrate on.
