Monument details

HER Number:1914
Type of record:Archaeology
Name:Roman Camp at Stamford Lodge

Summary

Examination of 1947 RAF photos has revealed rectangular enclosure here. It has survived as a severely degraded earthwork, lying in 2 arable fields that are regularly under the plough. The enclosure is defined by low bank 0.2m high. A break in the center of the east arm is probably an entrance. There are no internal features. The site is also overlain by ridge and furrow. The proximity to Watling Street Roman road and the rounded corners of the enclosure may suggest a Roman military context.
