Other Roman Excavations

Throughout Hadrian's Wall Country excavations are happening that shed new light on our Roman heritage and provide the opportunity for you to get involved.


WallQuest is a community archaeology programme that involves local communities and volunteers in research and excavations along the eastern sector of Hadrian's Wall.

Current projects include excavations at Arbeia, a search for remains of the lost Roman vicus at Benwell, a search for the line of Hadrian's Wall and the Roman civilian settlement outside the fort of Segedunum amongst other works.

Vindolanda is a site with over 300 years of Roman occupation on Hadrian’s Wall, at least nine forts and settlements, and was the home to many different communities all of whom would have had their own distinctive take and experiences of what it was like to live life on the edge, the edge of Empire. The Vindolanda site has both an active archaeological excavation programme and an award winning museum, set in charming gardens.  The Vindolanda excavations start on the 7th of April and run through to the 19th of September. The excavation programme is of national and international importance, involving 500 volunteers from all walks of life and all parts of the globe.  The 2014 excavations at Vindolanda will enter into a crucial stage of research which will be the most exciting that have taken place at the site for a generation. They explore three areas of Vindolanda and encompass over 300 years of history.

The 2014 Excavation Programme is underway. For more information on taking part and ongoing Excavation Reports click here
