Discovering Derventio: Roman Papcastle Revealed

A pop-up exhibition of the star finds from the recent community excavation at Papcastle. Following the catastrophic floods of 2009 local volunteers, led by Grampus Heritage and Wardell Armstrong Archaeology Ltd, excavated a number of sites on the banks of the River Derwent. The excavations revealed previously unknown Roman structures including a mill, a massive bath house complex and a bridge over the river. The project was funded by a grant from Heritage Lottery Fund.
