2019 Durobrivae Dig Report Published


For the first time in nearly 200 years excavations were carried out in 2019 within the walled Roman town of Durobrivae near Peterborough. This was an exploratory exercise in conjunction with Historic England to assess the state of preservation of the site.


NVAT brought together expertise and resources from organisations including Cardiff University, Albion Archaeology and the British Museum.


Archaeological finds included the tessellated floor of a Roman-Celtic temple but equally striking were rabbit burrows through the archaeology to a depth of up to 2.3m.


A summary of the report has been added to the NVAT website - and the full report is available for download.
