Bradford Abbas, Dorset: Aerial Investigation and Mapping of a Roman Camp

Author(s): H Winton, Damian Grady

This report describes the main archaeological features and technical details of the air photo survey of a small area around the possible Roman temporary camp first noted in 2010 by English Heritage aerial reconnaissance. The form and location of the camp conform to the expected criteria associated with Roman temporary camps in Britain. The discovery of a previously unknown Roman camp in the south-west of England is highly significant as it is one of only four examples known in the region and it could be associated with the Claudian campaign against the local Iron Age population.
