It was discovered in 2017 and the dig will be carried out with supervision from professional archaeologists.

This is part of the the Uncovering Roman Carlisle project, which recently received a £99,000 National Lottery Heritage Fund grant and will run for an 18 months.

The site will be open every day between 9.30am - 4pm for people to visit. Volunteers can also sign up to take part here.
