Ribchester Revisited is a long-term archaeological project investigating the important village of Ribchester, Lancashire, UK. The village dates back to the Roman period when an auxiliary cavalry fort was established on the north bank of the river Ribble. This project will revisit Ribchester through exploration of the archaeological archives from previous excavations and significant new excavation, its primary objective to explore the evolving use of the interior of the fort and its changing relationship with the Vicus.
