Rough Castle
The foundations of these buildings were located during excavations which took place in 1902,1903, 1932 and 1957-61.Rough Castle is the best preserved of the Secordary Antonine forts. This fort was the secondsmallest along the wall - extending to 0.4 hectacres (approx 1 acre) and is enclosed within doublebanks and a ditch system. It is situated immediately to the south of the wall.There were Gateways on each of its four sides with roadways acoss the ditches to allow access.The larger annexe was added to the east of the fort and contained the bath house.We know from two inscriptions found here that the fort was the base of some 500 men of theSixth Cohort of Nervii, an infantry unit recruited from a tribe in Belguim and served under thecommand of Flavius Betto of the twentieth Legion.
