of the Fort at Rough Castle
— #3 —From where you are standing, most of the defences of the Roman fort of Rough Castle are behind you. In front of you are the remains of a system of Roman pits which were re-excavated in 1903 and have since been kept open. These originally consisted of ten rows of about 20 pits, in line with the fort rampart; you can imagine the pits stretching rather further to your right and left. The pits were once about 0.9 m (3 feet) deep and probably held upright sharpened stakes, concealed from view by brushwood.
