Derwydd Bach Camp
Marching or Temporary Camps
This camp lies on the western bank of the Afon Dwyfach less than ½ mile to the north-east of the Pen Llystyn fort. It is very likely that the camp was the first Roman military establishment in the area, probably during the first campaign season of governor Agricola sometime in the late-Summer of 77AD or 78. The camp preceeded the nearby fort by a year or less.
