Romans in Ravenglass

Introducing the project

Romans in Ravenglass was a community-led archaeology project during two summers in 2013 and 2014. Over 900 local volunteers worked with professional archaeologists to uncover the Roman Ravenglass story.

The impressive ruins of the 2,000 year-old Roman fort and bath house can be seen close to modern-day Ravenglass. The aim of the Romans in Ravenglass project was to find out more about the ancient settlement that hides beneath the grassy fields.
