VERBEIA ROMAN FORT

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  ILKLEY ROMAN FORT
DESCRIPTION + /

The site of a Roman fort at Ilkley, with the possible Roman placename Verbeia. Excavation indicated that the first fort was timber-built in circa 80 AD, abandoned in circa 100 AD, and reoccupied in circa 169 AD. It was then burnt again in circa 196-7 AD, rebuilt in stone in circa 198 AD, and reorganised and rebuilt in circa 300 AD. Finds from outside the fort show that the vicus lay chiefly to the south and extended for at least 1/2 mile east-west.
