HADRIAN'S WALL MILECASTLE 78 (KIRKLAND), CUMBRIA: INTERIM REPORT ON ARCHAEOLOGICAL EVALUATION, SEPTEMBER 2000

Author(s): Helen Moore, Tony Wilmott

Milecastle 78 is one of thirteen of these installations on Hadrian's Wall under regular or intermittent ploughing. Field evaluation was carried out on these milecastles in 1999-2000.No substantial work has previously been done at this site, which was located by trenching in 1934. The excavation of three trenches showed that the milecastle survives in good condition, despite having been heavily robbed. It has rounded external corners and square internal corners, and is a long-axis milecastle measuring 20.2m east-west and 24.9m north-south.
