Mid Tees research project

Principal investigator: John Brown
Level: Archaeology society project

The Mid Tees Research Project is grassroots archaeological project in the early development stage, investigating Roman military and civilian settlement in the Tees corridor between the tidal limit at Worsall and Piercebridge.

The focus of the project is a Roman military and multi-phase civilian settlement including a 1st century marching camp recently identified at the crossing point of the eastern Roman Road (Cades Road, Margary 80a), which currently extends to 12 hectares. The aim of the project is to encourage individual research projects from suitably qualified and experienced people to complement the work of the core researchers, whilst working within the project design brief of establishing a timeline for the site. We also intend to provide experience and training to committed and experienced volunteers working across the project to develop the skills to eventually take ownership of small scale projects within the site.

Higher access is required to identify known finds sites across the research area to compliment our own research on a number of sites, and with a view to clairifying the sum of the current knowledge onto a GIS landscape, to give some clarity to the Tees Valley Roman landscape.

Dr Steve Sherlock is a member of the project team, and as the site is within Stockton on Tees, we are currently in discussions with Robin Daniels of Tees Archaeology.
