Concangis is the Roman name

Filed under:General — eric @ 3:10 am

Concangis is the Roman name for Chester-le-Street, a place in County Durham, Great Britain. It was excavated in 1990-1991, and the excavation is completely documented on-line. This is the most complete documentation I’ve seen on an archaeological excavation and is of interest to academics and lay persons alike. It brings together popular accounts of the dig, academic papers, photos, and even the daily journal of the person in charge. One artifact found was a portion of a cheese press.
