Village Uncovered, Marton Community Heritage Project

Uncovering lives of the Roman roadside settlement

Roman remains have been recorded as coming from Marton for many years.  Tillbridge Lane was a major Roman road to York which avoided the Humber crossing, and next to the road in Marton a settlement grew up and flourished throughout the whole of the Roman period.  Finds can still be picked up from the surfaces of the fields which tell us more about how people lived at that time: this and  geophysical survey has told us a little about what is buried below the surface. 

 We are organising an excavation in November 2010 and we want members of the community in and around Marton to come and help.  You don’t need to have any experience, you just need to book a place!
