First steps to explore the Dig for Eboracum: Roman Walking Tour

With plans afoot for a major archaeological dig on York’s Rougier Street, which it is hoped will reveal more about the lives of the city’s Roman residence, York Archaeological Trust and the Council for British Archaeology Yorkshire have teamed up to offer a special tour, this Wednesday 24 July 2019 at 5.30pm.

The tour forms part of the CBA’s Festival of Archaeology, and will give participants the opportunity to hear the ‘story so far’ of what we know about the Romans who lived in this part of the city.  Led by YAT’s head of archaeology, Ian Milsted, the 90 minute walk will take history enthusiasts on a tour of the key sites that have already been excavated in the Micklegate area, to connect the dots of what we already know and to speculate about what might come out of the huge Dig for Eboracum, which is hoped to start next summer.
