XArch Project: Brayford Community Archaeology Project
The Roman Fun Day
In July 2003 the Community organised a Roman Fun Day in order to create a wider local knowledge of our Romano Heritage. The day was supported by the Devon Museum service, North Devon Archaeology Society, Ace Archaeology, and representatives of the Devon County Council and Exeter University. On the day many Romano trades were demonstrated and iron was smelted in the village once again.

In other Romano Iron industry sites in England, the Roman Army or Navy have taken a very active part in the industry, and they built accommodation to the standard they were accustomed.
