Romans in Cawood

In the last few months we have been looking at the possibility that Romans lived here

We had a talk by Kurt Hunter Mann an expert from York who is helping us understand more about Roman lifeposter-for-presentation

The earliest finds were in the 1930’s at the Caravan park on the edge of the village

Some pottery was found in a ditch.

This site has now disappeared but others keep appearing

With the help of North Yorkshire County Council Heritage department we now have a list of possible sites to investigate

In the centre of the village close to the traffic lights whilst digging a hole for a new lamp post some roman glass making equipment was found including a crucible
