7/15 Gariannonum Roman Fort
Roman fort. Probably 260-280 A.D., evacuated c.407-8. Subsequently used as
Saxon settlement. Norman motte and bailey castle constructed at south-west
corner in late Cll, completely removed 1839. Flint, brick and concrete.
Roughly quadrangular. North, east and south walls survive. Traces of
foundations of west wall discovered during excavations of 1958-62. Walls of
coursed flint facing to concrete rubble core. Every 5-6 courses of flints
are 3 courses of bricks, giving striated appearance to walls. At corners and
at centre of shorter sides (north and south) are bulbous drum bastions,
standing away from walls at base and linked to walls at top. They are solid.
2 further bastions are symmetrically placed in east wall flanking central main
gateway. Gateway is now only a jagged hole. The bastions are later additions,
probably C4. Scheduled Ancient Monument, County number 399.
