This is the sixth season of test pit excavations on the Fane Road Allotment Site. In addition, the Heritage Lottery funded ‘Romans of Fane Road’ excavation was undertaken in 2014. The aims of previous excavations were to; establish the location of the southern part of the Iron Age enclosure ditch, establish any outlying Roman building foundations, locate and record Roman middens (rubbish tips) and establish the extent of the Roman metalled surface found in October 2015 with students of the Perse School. This year we will revisit six test pits from previous seasons that produced results requiring further investigation.
