For thirty years between 1955 and 1985 Dr Graham Webster conducted excavations on the Roman legionary fortress and civitas capital site at Wroxeter in Shropshire (SJ 570090). These were eventually published in two volumes:

Webster, G. (ed. Chadderton, J.) 2002. The Legionary Fortress at Wroxeter. Excavations by Graham Webster, 1955-85, English Heritage Archaeological Report 19 (London).

Ellis, P. 2000. The Roman Baths and Macellum at Wroxeter. Excavations by Graham Webster 1955-85, English Heritage Archaeological Report 9 (London).

The archive is curated by English Heritage in their stores at Atcham. The aim of the archive project was to rationalise and order it in such a way as to provide an easily accessible resource for people who may wish to use the material recovered during the excavations for future research.

The work was funded by English Heritage and carried out between June and November 2010.
