In 2018, archaeologists discovered the remains of a Roman road in Northumberland, in the north of England. It is part of the road known as “Devil’s Causeway”.

Last summer, for several weeks, a group of researchers from “AAG Archeology” worked to uncover traces of a fragment of the Roman road between Matfen and Belsay. Mainly riders who patrolled the area travelled along this road. Probably their base was the Onnum camp (near the village of Halton), which was established between 122 and 126 CE. The 6th legion was located in castrum; in the 3rd century the camp became the seat of the driving department Ala I Pannoniorum Sabiniana.

The work of archaeologists was facilitated by drones, thanks to which scientists could “observe” scientists where the road might have run.
