Coesike East Temporary Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

Coesike East Temporary Camp lies just over 260 feet (80m) to the north-east of Camps-1 & 2, and is almost perfectly rectangular in outline. There are gates with external tituli located centrally in the south, east and west sides, though any similar structures which may originally have existed on the north are now obscured by modern drains. Traces of the rampart exist only in the south-east corner but the ditch is readily apparent.
