Romans on the Don
In 2006, the South Yorkshire Archaeology Service completed the Romans on the Don project, with English Heritage funding via the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund. The project aimed to tell local communities about the rich evidence for Iron Age and Roman life that has been discovered in the borough of Doncaster as a result of aggregates quarrying. Numerous sites have now been excavated and the results paint a picture of what life was like in later prehistory and under the Romans, in the Doncaster area. The excavations have told us about the impact of Romanisation on settlements and farmland.
The project, which was carried out by inHeritage, included educational events for schools and the production of a downloadable teacher’s pack. A downloadable children’s comic was also produced. The content of the Romans on the Don booklet has been reproduced as a series of webpages.
