The photo looks east along the road through the
vicus, the civilian settlement outside the fort. To left
and right are the foundations of late Roman stone buildings. These
strip buildings, which probably served as shops, dwellings and workshops.
Deeply stratified beneath these stone buildings are the waterlogged
remains of the earliest forts. The west gate of the fort, one of
the two main gates, has a guard chamber on either side. The foundations
of the late Roman HQ (praetorium) are exposed in the fort.
Beyond is Barcombe Hill, on top of which is a Roman signal tower.
