ULAS and the University of Leicester School of Archaeology and Ancient History are pleased to announce the launch, today, of a new website romanleicester.com. Walk through Leicester today and it is often hard to imagine that we are treading on over 2,000 years of history. But now, with more than 80 years of archaeological excavations…
A major excavation in north-west Leicester features in the Leicester Mercury, with a video and interviews with some of the team working on the site. The Waterside Project has revealed fresh discoveries into the city’s Roman and medieval past on land to the west of the city centre bordering the River Soar.
We’ve excavated on a wide range of projects in 2018. Here we showcase 12 images taken throughout the year, highlighting our main discoveries, click on the images to read more from each project.
Through a combination of narrative and new archaeological research Life in the Roman World: Roman Leicester by Giacomo Savani, Sarah Scott and Mathew Morris explores the nature of everyday life under the Romans.
