New excavations start at Caerleon's Roman fortress

A four-week excavation is starting on new finds outside Caerleon's fortress in south Wales, one of Britain's best known Roman sites. Archaeologists from Cardiff University think the remains could include a quayside, markets and temples.

They hope the new dig will provide a better understanding about the importance of the town all those years ago.

The discovery was made by chance in 2010.
