Introduction to the project and how it came about

June 2013, I took my 12 year old nephew Kyah to Hadrians wall on a camping holiday. He stood looking at the wall and asked why the Romans had built it, I said it was ‘because the Romans needed a defense line’ and ‘they were bored’.

My nephew has always been a visual person; he takes in more knowledge being shown the historical value of the landscape, then reading about it.

After that holiday I read in the local newspaper of Romans settlements being found in Chester Green, Derby, unfortunately, I was not able to gain permission to photograph at the dig site, so I followed the coverage through the local news.

So here was born “Shreds of Rome” documentary.
