Vinovia

The Buried Roman City of Binchester

Availability: In stock

Binchester Roman fort, Roman Vinovia, lies on a hilltop spur about two kilometres north of the modern town of Bishop Auckland in County Durham. This book draws on the results of large-scale excavations in the 1970s and 80s to describe the sequence of construction of the fort from 1st century timber beginnings, to the final phase of stone building in the 4th. Iain Ferris also looks at the evidence for daily life at the fort, its military significance, and asks what it can tell us about the end of Roman Britain in the north.
