It has made grants in support of conference volumes, journal articles, the exhibition catalogue for the York 2005 exhibition on Constantine and the corpora of Roman mosaics in Britain, excavation monographs and publications of doctoral theses. Additionally it has supported conferences for academic and wider audiences at Oxford and Durham. It has also contributed to the development of major educational resources related to Roman Britain, including the Minimus project and the York Archaeological Trust's extensive web resource on Roman Britain.
