Archaeology Notes

NO21NW 58 centred 20953 17684

To the south of and underlying the Roman fort, (NO21NW 24), is a temporary camp: 800' of the W side and 975 of the E have been traced. The N and S sides have not been found but are thought to lie under the N defences of the fort and under plantations and a main road. In the E side a gate is presumed at the point where there is a change of direction of 11.
