DigVentures is back in East Yorkshire, excavating the remains of one of the earliest Roman settlements ever discovered in the region. Take a walk around the excavation and watch as our Dig Team unearths the remains of walls, floors, hearths, and more! This dig was made possible with the support of the DigVentures community.
