Archaeologists, a group of students and volunteers continue their exploratory work in Maryport, UK. The fort and the nearby border settlement have been under constant research since 2011. For over 300 years, this region was an important element of the defensive fortifications of the Roman Empire and co-created the northern border of Rome.

In 2015, excavations gave more information about the size of the temple erected on this site. As it turns out, it was a large complex and nowhere else has a religious building located so close to the border been found. The team also managed to find unique Roman jewellery.
