KIRKBRIDE ROMAN FORT

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Kirkbride Roman fort. Excavation suggested it was of Flavian date (circa 80 AD). It formed part of the Stanegate Frontier and was presumably abandoned after the construction of Hadrian's Wall. The fort measured approximately 190 metres by 175 metres and was defended by a turf rampart 9 metres wide with double outer ditches. Industrial evidence of lead and iron working was present. Excavations also uncovered the site of the vicus. Traces of roads leading into the fort from the north and east and part of the north intervallum road are seen on air photographs.
