This poster presents the results of an intensive geophysical survey conducted in 2010 in the areas to the east and south east of the Roman fort at Maryport, Cumbria. Magnetometry, resistivity and Ground Penetrating Radar were applied at the site, and provided varying responses to the archaeological deposits in the area. Integration of the different datasets using GIS and interpretation layers facilitated a more comprehensive understanding of the archaeological features across the extra-mural area.
