Bowes Temporary Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

Earthwork remains of a Roman temporary camp interspersed with later field systems, agricultural earthworks and a possible windmill mound.

New aerial photography taken in July 2006 led to a re-appraisal of the earthworks. Ground survey has shown that the rectangular enclosure is a Roman temporary camp of possible Flavian date.
