DescriptionMagnitude Surveys was commissioned to undertake a geophysical investigation on a c. 1 ha area of land at Deanery Field for Big Heritage’s Waking the Legions project. This was work undertaken as part of the Festival of Archaeology 2016, which aimed to engage members of the public with archaeological heritage. A multimethod geophysical approach using ground penetrating radar, earth resistance, and magnetic methods targeted buried Roman remains that had previously been discovered during excavations in the 1920s and 1930s. This combined approach successfully detected a number of archaeological features that likely reflect Roman occupation of the site. The report provides information regarding the background to the site, aim, objectives and methodology, overview of the instrument set-up, results with images
