Historical Research

Ermine Street Community Dig Historical Research Team is a group of students and volunteers led by Dr Duncan Wright, Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln.

imageOur aim is to find material which will expand our knowledge of the locations in which the test pits are being dug. We visit the Lincolnshire Archives, libraries, local historians and members of the public. We are keen to tell the whole story of Ermine Street. Our work brings a deeper understanding of the artefacts and structures uncovered by the archaeologists and volunteers.

We are always keen to hear from anyone who has maps, documents, old photographs or memories of Newport, Riseholme Road and surrounding areas. If you have any material, or would like to get involved with the team, please get in touch with our group co-ordinator Avril who will be happy to help.
