Warburton - No stone unturned...

This week's programme was a dig on farm land in the quiet rural village of Warburton to investigate suggestions that the site could have once been a Roman fort.

Discovered by metal detecting enthusiast James Balme almost a decade ago, the site had already proven to be a hot bed of historical finds including an invaluable Roman serpent bracelet.

The assemblage of finds must be interpreted in the context of the North West of England. The evidence for Roman activity in the area is relatively sparse. Sites tend to produce few finds and aerial photography is rarely productive.
In fact there is a huge gap in knowledge about the extent of both Roman military and civilian occupation in the region.

This dig produced the largest square metre-age ever excavated on a Time Team!

And all in just three days...
