Roman fort dig starts in Lancaster Castle

Evidence of a major Roman fort - designed to keep invaders out of Britain - could have been unearthed by archaeologists, and it is causing a great deal of excitement.

Volunteers have travelled from around the UK and abroad to take part in the dig at Lancaster Castle, which experts believe could reveal a huge garrison - that would have been key to Roman defences on Britain's west coast.
