TOWER 2B

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Roman tower 2B. Excavations in 1993 uncovered the remains of a sequence of three Roman towers (part of the Roman frontier defences supporting Hadrian's Wall along the Cumbrian coast). Initial investigations indicated two timber phases followed by rebuilding in stone, although the presence of any timber towers is now refuted. The outline of the tower is visible on aerial photographs. No surface remains are visible.
