Barrockside Camp

Marching or Temporary Camp

Barrockside Camp was a small marching camp had four gates defended by external tituli on all but the north side with an additional internal clavicula on the eastern gateway. The east and west gates were offset to the south on a ratio of roughly 2:3; on this evidence the camp very likely faced south.
