The finds from the site to date have mainly consisted of pottery. However, several Roman bronze coins have also been found including one of the emperor Carausius (286-293), Britain's very own Roman emperor.

Further excavations will take place at Chester Farm in the next few years and who knows what will be found. This will develop our understanding of the surviving archaeology and give our volunteers the chance to 'have a go'.
