Wirksworth Archaeological Society

The archaeology of Lutudarum


The purpose of the Society is to carry out archaeological work within and around Wirksworth in the Peak District.


Although we are principally interested in the Roman and Mercian periods, and have a specific project (The Wirksworth Roman Project), we also cover any archaeological issues which relate to Wirksworth and its immediate hinterland, whatever the period concerned.


Individual assessments and updates are listed under "Work / Finds" which deals with current work in progress.
