Thousand-page report reveals treasures of Carlisle Roman excavation

A decade later later, the report of the 1999 "Millennuim Dig" at Carlisle describes the tens of thousands of items found at the site. Finds of wooden buildings and leather artifacts surprised the archaeologists, as such materials don't normally survive.

The project "also saw 2662 fragments of pottery – including 442 bowls from Gaul – 536 Roman coins, 30,250 bits of animal bone, 11 spearheads and 32 arrowheads recovered."
