The WROXETER HINTERLAND Project (951 words)
Wroxeter Roman City, capital of the British tribe known as the Cornovii, is the largest ancient city in Britain to have survived modern development unscathed.
The challenge of the Wroxeter Project is to investigate and interpret the remains of this great city; to study not just the city itself, but also the surrounding landscape in order to understand the origins, development and ultimate abandonment of the settlement.
The multi-disciplinary study of Wroxeter and its rural hinterland aims to investigate the success of that mechanism in detail, by examining the changing fortunes of the city over time and the complex relationships between the city and the rural hinterland which supported it.
