A new section called ‘Seeing Roman Lincolnshire’ has been added to the blog, providing a guide to the physical remains of Roman Lincolnshire which are still visible, and indeed visitable, in the landscape.

The section can be accessed from the header of the blog and aims to provide a complete guide – from famous monuments like Lincoln’s Newport Arch down to lesser known sites and fragments of remains incorporated into later structures. This will hopefully serve to provide a useful reference for anyone visiting the county and help raise the profile of Lincolnshire’s varied and well preserved Roman heritage. Only visible elements are listed, though, so if there is nothing now to see above ground at a site, however important it is, it won’t be included. Equally, any remains that cannot be visited by the average tourist without prior arrangement or trespassing onto private property have been omitted (though their existence usually noted).

In order to make the content manageable, the guide is divided into sub sections:

Physical remains – Lincoln

Physical remains – Ancaster, Caistor and Horncastle

Physical remains – rural Lincolnshire


Roman roads

I hope that the guide is as complete and accurate as it can be, but inevitably I’ll have missed something out, so please do let me know through the comments if there is something else that should appear on these pages.
