Experimental archaeology update Plans submitted 2,000 years on
ARCHAEOLOGISTS have submitted a planning application to build a Roman bridge - 2,000 years after it was first constructed.

They have been working for more than two years on uncovering one of the most impressive pieces of Roman masonry in the Hadrian's Wall area.

The team from Tyne and Wear Museums uncovered stones from what is believed to be a prestigious and ornamental bridge across the River Tyne at Corbridge, Northumberland.
