Sorry, we don't have a photo of this plaque yet.

This section shows the overlying remains of the four Roman Forts that stood on this site from AD 70 to AD410. It is an accurate copy of the deposits that were excavated. Fort IV c AD 200-c AD 410. The Last fort on this site was the same size as Fort III. The earlier rampart was dug away along it's front and a stone wall inserted. New foundations were laid for the roads and buildings of this fort. Fort III c AD 160 - c AD 200. The third fort extended to the west in order to house a mixed garrison of infantry and cavalry. Before this new fort was built the remains of the older fort (II) were removed and much of the soft ground where ditches lay was dug out and filled with firmer foundations. A rampart made of turf was built and this was capped by a timber palisage. Fort II c ad 90-c AD 160. The earlier fort (I) was replaced by a more substantial one that lay in the same position. It had two lines of defensive ditches which can be seen in the section. Fort I c AD 79 - c AD 90. The first fort was of timber and designed to hold a garrison of around 480 foot soldiers. The timber rampart or wall of this fort lay to the east. Outside of the wall was a series of defensive ditches which can be seen in the section. Beyond these lay a service road.
