The University of York's current excavations of part of the vicus outside the Roman base at Malton are being complemented by more extensive geophysical and field surveys. The field survey - remarkably, the first such detailed investigation ever to have been carried out there - is now approaching completion. The survey has shed new light on later reincarnations of the site, notably Malton castle (or castles?) and the great house and gardens constructed in 1604 for Sir Ralph Eure. Our improved understanding of these 'filters', through which we now perceive the Roman remains, is, in turn, allowing us to revisit aspects of the interpretation of the fort itself.
