Be part of something amazing this September …

This September a team of volunteers led by archaeologist Al Oswald are going to be helping to record and dismantle the dry stone wall that was erected in 1843 across the middle of Epiacum Roman fort. This is no normal dry stone wall though. Many of the stones used to construct the wall by the victorians came from the Roman fort.


The wall

We have already identified a base of a Roman column and other architectural features embedded in the wall.

You could be part of an amazing team of volunteers and part of the next stage in the history of this astonishing site.

Working with the team you could be helping:

  • by handling 2000 year old parts of a Roman fort
  • helping with the PR and recording
  • helping in the camp
  • helping with social media / photography / blogging etc.
  • helping with general management or security
  • helping beforehand from the comfort of your own home by helping us plan and get sponsors

We need your help this September (or before if you can)
