We have completed the Geophysics that was planned at Low Borrowbridge and the data is with Karl of OAN for analysis. We will post results as soon as we have them. We have a few weeks of permission to work on the site left and may attempt more resistivity if time and weather allow.

Low Borrowbridge Roman Fort Geophysical Survey

LAS has been granted permission by Historic England to undertake a non-intrusive geophysical survey of the interior and immediate exterior of the Roman Fort at Low Borrowbridge. The work will be undertaken with the help of Oxford Archaeology North and is scheduled to take place 17-21st August 2015. The work is supported financially by grants from the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (CWAAS) and Kendal Historical and Archaeological Society (KHAS), and to both of which we are very grateful. The Low Borrowbridge Project Design is available for download.
