CASTRA EXPLORATUM ROMAN FORT

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  BROCARA, CASTRA EXPLORATORVM
DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Castra Exploratorum Roman Fort and civil settlement at Netherby. There are no visible remains, Netherby Hall probably occupies the site of the fort. It was occupied from the time of Agricola, from the 80s AD until the 4th century AD. Its earlier name, at least during the occupation of the Antonine Wall, could have been "Brocara". Descriptions by antiquarians and the epigraphic evidence of a number of inscriptions, make it certain that a fort and substantial settlement existed here, probably with a port on the River Esk, since silted up.
