The Durotriges Project has, since 2009, been investigating the nature of prehistoric to Roman activity across Dorset. To date, three Late Iron Age settlements (including ‘Duropolis’), a number of prehistoric and Roman cemeteries, a Roman villa and six sub Roman farming communities have been excavated.
In 2017 work will focus on new areas revealed by geophysical survey in 2016.
