Raeburnfoot Temporary Camp

Marching or Temporary Camps

First discovered during analysis of air photographs by McKeague (RCAHMS) in 2004, this camp was confirmed through ground survey in 2005 (Jones & McKeague 2009). It survives as an earthwork but is in an extremely degraded condition, with the counterscarp bank the only element to survive in places. The maximum height of the counterscarp or rampart above the ditch is 0.3m. The Roman fort of Raeburnfoot lies on lower ground, some 250m to the south.
