A VAST collection of Roman artefacts which prove the Romans arrived in North Yorkshire ten years earlier than originally believed is to go on show on Monday.

Archaeologists working on the A1 Leeming to Barton project uncovered more than 200,000 finds and sieved more than 84 tonnes of sediment samples. They have found numerous artefacts dating between the prehistoric and Roman periods.

The pieces will make up an exhibition at Richmondshire Museum, in Richmond, on Monday, May 16.

A selection of 50 artefacts from the Roman town at Catterick - formerly Cataractonium - including coins, gaming counters and a perfectly preserved wooden comb, will be on display at the museum until October.
