The Silchester Insula IX Roman Town Life Project

December 4, 2008

The Silchester ‘Town Life’ Project consists of the total excavation of a large part of one of the insulae (blocks) of a major Roman administrative capital in southern Britain. Fieldwork began in 1997 and continues annually over a six-week season. The principal aim is to increase our understanding of the changing nature of the occupation of Insula IX from its origins in the first century B.C. through to its demise in the fifth or sixth century A.D. The 2009 season will focus on the late Iron Age/early Roman occupation of the insula.

Cost for Field School: £250 per week

Dates: 29 June – 9 August 2009


Applications are welcome from all over the world, minimum age 16
