Sandford Heath's 'Roman Road' is excavated in Dorset
An archaeological dig has begun on a Dorset footpath to determine whether or not it has Roman origins.
The straight path, known locally as "Roman Road", runs through Sandford Heath between Sandford and Station Road at Holton Heath.
Organisers say the path may have formed part of the main road between Wareham and Poole in the 18th Century.
