Archeologists digging for clues about life in Roman Maryport have discovered a series of buildings on the site.
When excavation started in June the team from Newcastle University were searching for the origins of one building and were surprised by the new discovery.
The recent wet weather has held the team back, which is also made up of local volunteers, but they hope by mid August to have determined what the buildings were and what they were used for.
It adds another chapter to the story of Roman Maryport
As the site manager explains below the dig has been hampered by the weather but there is more archaeology at the site than expected.
