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.
