Turret 3a Nominated ‘Rescue Project of the Year’

By 04/12/2023News

We’re over the moon that our discovery of the previously unknown Turret 3a on Hadrian’s Wall has been nominated for Rescue Project of the Year at the 2024 Current Archaeology Awards!

Turret 3a is one of the largest turrets uncovered and the only known confirmed turret east of Newcastle. Excitingly, our investigation demonstrated that the potential for significant archaeological remains relating to Hadrian’s Wall can survive in the more built-up areas of urban Tyneside, with the discovery of the wall ditch and six berm obstacle pits as well as the remains of Turret 3a.

Voting is open until 5th February with the winner announced at the Current Archaeology Live 2024 conference at UCL’s Institute of Education on 24th February.
