ARCHAEOLOGISTS are celebrating after unearthing a "regionally important" Romano-British site in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

An archaeological dig is currently underway at Hagg Farm, near Fremington, with the support of the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority with more than 25 volunteers helping each day.

And what they have uncovered is shedding new light on life in the area, near Reeth, many centuries ago.

"It's the civil engineering on this site that sets it apart - the quality and size of the flags, walls and door sills," said on-site archaeologist Tony Liddell.
