Roman Dam

For a number of years, there has been speculation that  there was always a Roman Dam across the River Wear at South Hylton.  Former airline pilot and air traffic controller Ray Selkirk, whose hobby was amateur archaeology, believed the Roman Army of occupation may have used the Wear for a greater part of its length than previous;y believed. Recently, the Northern Archaeology group, whom Ray was a member, put together a DVD on their theory.
