Roman dig in Maryport

Archaeologist began work on the site last year Credit: ITV
A major excavation is taking place at the Roman Fort in Maryport. It follows on from work done last year, which discovered evidence of a large wooden building.

Up until that point it was thought that 17 altar stones found on the site in the 19th Century had been buried as part of a religious ceremony, but they were found to have been reused in the foundations of the timber framed building.
