The Wroxeter Project: archaeology, technology and the community


This archaeological project explores the Roman City of Viroconium around Wroxeter in Shropshire. It involves a multi-disciplinary team including amateur archaeologists and other higher education institutions, businesses, libraries, schools and museums. The ‘open air’ laboratory has become a testing ground for new technological advances and instruments, efficient data collection and processing as well as extensive publication of results to the wider public.
