DIG: Roman Binchester Excavations and Field School

VINOVIUM 2010 – The Binchester Excavation Project

Season dates: July 4, 2010 – July 31, 2010

Application Deadline: April 15, 2010

This brand new major archaeological project is currently seeking enthusiastic excavation volunteers to work in a part of the Roman frontier that includes Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site. The Binchester Roman Town Excavation Project is excavating the fort and expansive town near Durham, located in one of the richest archaeological landscapes in the world.

Known to the Romans as Vinovium (“On the Wine Road”), Binchester protected Dere Street, the main road that ran from the legionary headquarters at York northwards to Hadrian’s Wall. It was a key element of the complex frontier system that lay on both sides of the Wall, forming the edge of empire for nearly four hundred years. Previous excavation has so far uncovered the best preserved Roman bath house in the UK and some of the most impressive mausolea seen on a Roman site for 150 years; geophysical survey reveals a large town that stayed thriving long after the empire fell; across the river at Escomb is one of the oldest churches in Britain, built from the stones of Binchester in the 7th century, still standing as a reminder of the kingdom of Anglo-Saxon Northumbria, the heartland of Celtic Christianity and land of Arthurian romance.

The project represents an international partnership between scholars at Stanford University (USA) and Durham University (UK). Volunteers will spend 4 weeks excavating, processing artifacts, and visiting key archaeological sites in this area of the Hadrian’s Wall frontier zone.

The cost of $ 4,000 (USD) covers housing in the medieval town of Durham, all meals, archaeological instruction, and weekend field trips. Flights and travel to Durham are not included. Academic accreditation is possible (contact us for details).
