Archaeologists apply for funding at West Cumbrian site

A team of archaeologists led by Grampus Heritage has applied for UK£200,000 in funding from the Heritage Lottery for a three-year project to escavate Roman remains at Cockermouth and Papcastle in West Cumbria, England where a building thought to be a Roman bath was recently discovered.

Magnetic imagery has shown that the area includes "a substantial Roman building."

“As we have not yet seen a record of this site in recent historical documents it is so exciting that we may be the first people to have uncovered these remains in hundreds, maybe thousands, of years, ” said Mark Graham.
