Abstract

The Roman legionary fortress at Caerleon in south Wales, has been subject to archaeological investigation for more than 150 years, including the well-known amphitheatre excavations conducted by Mortimer and Tessa Wheeler in the 1920s. This retrospective link with the Institute of Archaeology has now been reinforced by a new project, organized jointly by UCL and Cardiff University, starting in 2007. Here the Directors of the project discuss their aims and the results of the first two seasons of work.
