First published in News by

A archaeological dig is hoping to uncover more about Ilkley’s ancient Roman fort and the lives of the soldiers who once lived there.

Archaeologists are digging trial trenches on Castle Hill, close to the Manor House Museum. The investigation has been instructed by property developer, Burley Developments, in consultation with English Heritage and West Yorkshire Archaeological Advisory Service.

The dig is located in an area close to a Roman road leading up to the fort gate. Members of the public will be welcome to visit the site on Wednesday, between 10am and noon.
