MILEFORTLET 5

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Roman milefortlet 5, visible as cropmarks on aerial photographs. It forms part of the Roman frontier defences supporting Hadrian's Wall along the Cumbrian coast. Excavated in 1943-4 when three phases were recognised. Phase 1 was Hadrianic; phase 2, when the the size of the milefortlet was reduced, was Antonine. The site was apparently unoccupied during the 3rd century; and phase 3 was a 4th century reoccupation of the site.
