Broxtowe Fort


This early-period fort now lies buried beneath a housing estate in the north-western outskirts of Nottingham. The significance of various artifacts recovered from the site was not realized until they were later identified as Roman. These finds included a scabbard-mount typical of that encasing a Roman legionary gladius, but these type of weapons were also used by certain auxiliary units so this cannot be taken as evidence of a legionary garrison here.
