News Clipping: Archaeologists in Roman Road dig at Sandford Heath
A ground breaking archaeological search for an ancient Roman road starts in Purbeck next week. Experts will excavate part of the straight footpath running through Sandford Heath, known locally as the Roman Road. Historians hope this dig will, once and for all, answer whether the
thoroughfare visible today was constructed over an ancient road built
during Dorset’s Roman occupation.
