Brecon Vicus (Cicucium or Y Gaer)

Mansio and Minor Settlement

To the north and east of the Brecon Roman Fort lies its vicus.  Significant quantities of Roman pottery and glassware, together with thin occupation layers, were discovered in the field to the east of the fort.

To the north of the fort were workshops buildings and a mansio; an imposing official residence used by both the Imperial Post and by visiting officials. All of these structures were covered up after being excavated.
