Where to Photograph Roman Britain in England

We are attempting to list all places where photographers can photograph Roman Britain within the UK. This is the start of a list to cover those places in England that will both grow over time and hopefully we will be able to add more columns or information.

Where the names in the first column is hyperlinked this links to a Location page with more information on this site and over time more of these will be added, we will be delighted if some of you would like to also produce location pages.
