LONGTHORPE ROMAN FORT

DESCRIPTION + /

A Roman Fort, possibly a campaign fortress of 27 acres was excavated at Longthorpe between 1967 and 1973. It was succeeded by an 11 acre Fort which made use of existing buildings. The fort may have been established as early as circa 44-48 and there is evidence of occupation to circa AD 61-2. It has not been possible to refine the construction date of the smaller fort within this time span.
