Category Recording

Type Excavation


The native occupation, represented by traces of post-holes and ditches underlying the Flavian I rampart on the E side, seems to have been levelled by the Flavian I fort. This in its turn was dismantled, as its N gate showed. The Flavian II fort probably followed after a short delay, and the final occupation of the site, the Hadrianic fortlet, ended in destruction, although details of its date and duration are obscure.
