In addition to shedding much light on the material culture of the fort's occupants and the structural and chronological relationships between various parts of the fort limited reinvestigation of Building XIV and excavatin of the east end of Building XV enabled significant reinterpretation of the original conclusions reached by the Durham investigators including some redating of structures.These excavations uncover the full 300-year period during which the fort formed an integal part of the Roman military frontier for much if not all of that time the base of the cohors I Tungrorum milliaria peditat. This report documents the excavations and gives full finds reports and the analysis of the evidence has enabled the authors to provide a full history of this part of the fort.Volume 1 is entitled Structural Report and DiscussionVolume 2 is entitled The Material AssemblagesPaperback 614pp (In 2 volumes)309 figuresPublished September 2009
