Public encouraged to participate in Navenby dig

The recent discovery of what is believed to be a Roman dwelling, dating to the 3rd or 4th century, in Navenby, Lincolnshire, England, offers an opportunity to the public to participate in a real archaeological dig. Work on the site is being sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund and will continue until September.

So far, workers have discovered pottery and animal bone dating to the late Roman time period. The area is believed to have been a midway point for the Romans between Ancaster and Lincoln.
