Roman County Durham | New publication now available

Roman County Durham_400hThis is the first comprehensive study in print of County Durham during the Roman period. Perhaps overshadowed by Hadrian’s Wall, the network of roads, forts and farming communities in its eastern hinterland formed a vital part of the infrastructure that supported the linear frontier and its garrisons, exerting a major influence upon the county’s history and development.

The county’s wealth of Roman military archaeology comprises seven forts with their attendant civilian settlements – including some of the best-preserved Roman buildings in Britain. Discoveries made in the last twenty years have transformed our understanding of life beyond the military communities.
