Abstract:
The project used non-invasive survey methods, res, mag and GPR, to re-examine the excavation and interpretation of Chester's Roman fort undertaken in the 1920's and 1930's at Deanery Field north of Chester Cathedral (NGR: SJ40576 66678), one of the only surviving open spaces within the walled town of Chester. The survey results demonstrated the presence of surviving archaeology that appeared to mirror the Roman army barrack blocks uncovered in the 19th century and a number of features that did not conform to the projected layout.

Magnitude 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
