Managed by direct marketing agency DMS, the appeal began on 30 May, and will be followed by a ‘What the Romans did for us’ educational leaflet door-drop in August. TV presenter Tony Robinson, well-known for presenting archaeology programmes, is the signatory to the mailed letter and the leaflet drop. Both will be sent out to The National Trust’s existing donors, and members of the public, who either have an interest in history or live within proximity to the sites to make a donation that help keep Roman Britain alive.
