CARRAWBURGH VICUS

ALTERNATIVE NAME:  BROCOLITIA
DESCRIPTION + /

The earthwork remains of a vicus associated with Carrawburgh Roman Fort. On the west side, six terraces with scarps up to 2.1 metres high have been cut into the slope parallel to the fort defences, and apparently overlying the north halves of all but one of the ditches. The terraces were seen as earthworks and mapped from air photographs. Like the fort itself, the stone buildings of the vicus have been badly robbed.
