Roman holiday!
FASCINATING clues about life in a Roman ‘motel’ were uncovered during an archaeological dig on the moors above Huddersfield

Top Roman officials and well-to-do travellers could well have stopped off at Slack while out and about on vital business.

And another exciting discoveries during the project near Outlane was the remains of what could be an aqueduct.

The nine-day dig – paid for by a £10,000 grant from the Lottery’s Awards for All scheme – was carried out by Huddersfield Archaeological Society.
