The Archaeology of Auxiliary Units

CART originally produced these pages exploring the archaeology of the Auxiliary Units as part of the Festival of Archaeology in 2020. With underground hideouts around the coastal areas from the far north of Scotland all along the east coast to South Wales, we could never have run a single face-to-face event covering all these locations.

As well as looking at the results of digs at Auxiliary Units sites, the pages explore the many different archaeological techniques and processes that have been applied. We have previously unpublished images and videos from investigations around the country. We have linked up with professional archaeologists to bring you some state of the art digital investigations.

In 2021 CART successfully applied for a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant as part of their Digital tranche 8 funding. This project will deliver recordings with 360 degree cameras during 2022. These will be processed into virtual tours which will be embedded across the website as well as in our CART 360 section.

Do start by watching our introductory video produced by Martyn Allen.
