Caistor Hall over the last six months has fully supported the Caistor Roman Project, through the provision of a complimentary meeting room and use of the venue for their trusties and fundraising projects.
Caistor Roman Project
The Caistor project is delighted to have gained funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This will allow the team to pursue new research in the village of Caistor itself and to develop the skills of its members. This will help with their long term sustainability and will mean that they are equipped to lead independent research.
The team will use test-pits, geophysics, archival research and oral histor in order to study the area from earliest times to the development of the modern village, as well as investigating the occupation of the outskirts of the Roman town.
Would you like to be involved in this exciting project? The Caistor Roman Project is run almost entirely by volunteers. Volunteers can get actively involved in field survey, finds processing, database management, and, of course, the excavation at Caistor.
The field walking programme commences in late Autumn through to early Spring. A regular newsletter, The Caistor Clarion, carries the latest project news and information as well as progress reports on fieldwork.
