See the film

A short film detailing the Roman wall discovery and its archaeological significance has been produced by South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) and is now available to view on the Council’s website and social media pages.

Following the exciting discovery of a Roman cellar wall under the ground at the Moat Lane site in the summer of last year, SNC has produced a short informative film to act as a record and explain the significance and story behind this impressive finding.

The wall was found alongside several other pieces across six different areas whilst excavating the site as part of the Moat Lane Regeneration Project. There were also pottery and metal artefacts discovered and even a skeletal torso.

It is planned that the film, alongside other artefacts from the Moat Lane excavation, will be exhibited in the Towcester Museum this February. This exhibition will give everyone the opportunity to view several of the pottery pieces found, look around a small poster display and watch the short film of the story of the Roman Cellar Wall.
