Leys may be home to Roman treasure


BLACKBIRD Leys may not be the first place that springs to mind when thinking about archaeology.
But a project around eastern Oxford is about to uncover the mysteries that lie under ground the city’s biggest estate.
On the weekend of May 19 and 20, archaeologists will be circling around the Leys digging pits and washing any finds with members of the public.
It is part of Archeox, the four-year East Oxford History Project, which has been busy excavating in the area for little more than a year.
