Reconstruction of the Roman fort Richborough (Rutupiae) in the South East of England. Probably after the battle of Mons Graupius (83 CE), a triumphal arch was erected in the fort to commemorate the conquest of Britain. The foundations of the building and the remains of the walls have survived to this day.
It is assumed that it was in this area that Claudius’ troops landed in 43 CE., Conquering the island. Originally a camp was established, which over time gained importance and also served as a port. Shifting the weight of the fighting far to the north provided the center with favorable conditions for development.
With the barbarian invasions by sea, the city was gradually rearmed. At the beginning of the 5th century CE Britain was abandoned, as was the fort.
