[7] JR.S., 43, 1953, 845 (annexe and outer ditches); 48, 1958, 95 (‘temporary camp’); 53, 1963, 132 and 55, 1965, 84, identifying a fort (the smaller of the two forts here described), the same feature as the ‘temporary camp’ of the previous reference, later photographs having shown the defences to include two ditches.

[13] Cf. Agricolan Fendoch, with an area of c. 3.9 acres within the rampart, which housed a cohors milliaria in rather tightly packed timber buildings. See Richmond, I. A. and McIntyre, J., Proc. Soc. Ant. Scot., 73, 1939, 11054 .

[14] These lie only some 20–25 ft. apart, and must represent the gutters of the road rather than side- ditches which, on trunk roads like Ermine Street, might be separated by 50 ft. or more.

[15] Probably the fort at Stretton Mill which surely relates to a S.E./N.W. line (Metchley to Chester), just as the fort at Eaton House relates to Watling Street. See J.R.S., 55, 1965, 77 , fig. 3.
