Unearthed at the Navenby site

A Roman Service Station in Navenby

An archaeological dig has uncovered relics from two thousand years ago in a Lincolnshire village.

Navenby is situated in between the large Roman settlements of Ancaster and Lincoln. It appears that the Navenby site was once the equivalent to the road side service station of today.

The scheme is being run by Pre-Construct Archaeology (Lincoln) - items uncovered include a road, building foundations and Roman graves along with pottery and coins.

Watch Simon Spark's Look North report from the site:
