Catterick Roman Excavations   

An excavation beside the A1 at Scotch Corner has uncovered a multitude of ancient Roman artifacts.
A public information area has been proposed for the site and to complement this a number of selected finds have been digitally reconstructed.
These would be viewed by scanning  QR codes printed on two triangular information pillars.

Each of these two pillars would additionally host a printed life sized character illustration; Cartimandua and a Roman Soldier.
