Here you can find out about our work and how to get involved in archaeological research with us.

 

Working in partnership with the University of Nottingham, the Caistor Roman Project, a registered charity was set-up to in 2009 to encourage community involvement in archaeological research in and around the Roman town of Venta Icenorum (present-day Caistor St. Edmund in Norfolk).  

Caistor St Edmund (Venta Icenorum) is one of only three Roman regional capitals in Britain that were not succeeded by medieval and modern towns, the others are Wroxeter and Silchester. The aim of the the project is to investigate the origins of the site in the late Iron Age and its development as a Roman town as well as the relationship between the town and its surrounding countryside.
