roman army fortifications pre-hadrians wall
#1
hi guys,

apologies first of all if this is posted elsewhere.

can anyone tell me the names and locations of any forts/fortifications in Roman Britain around 60-100AD particularly in the north. I'm interested in finding out what the Romans did before the wall.

Vindolanda/Chesterholm, basically a ditch and bank, turf and wood palisade fort in its early stages....

"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867

Someone has posted this paper on line from Britannia 1985. Still basically sound. Only minor details to be tweaked.
