Maryport named Research Project of the Year 2015

Each year, Current Archaeology magazine gives an award for the Research Project of the Year. Senhouse Museum Trust and archaeologists from Newcastle University have been working for over four years at the Camp Farm site near Maryport, and they have been named the 2015 recipients of the award.

“We know how special this site is,” said David Breeze, chairman of the Senhouse Museum Trust. “People have been investigating it in various ways for hundreds of years and much of what they have found is now on display in the Senhouse Roman Museum. With modern surveying and excavation techniques we’re able to gain a much more detailed picture of how the site developed over time, the relationship between the fort and the civilian settlement, and how people lived here.”
