In northern England, in the county of Cumbria, there are remains of the Roman fort Epiacum, which was built at the beginning of the 2nd century CE. The site received support of £10,000 from a private investor.
Dr. Tony Henfrey made this move because he sees great potential in this place. He believes that the fort may hide similar treasures as the famous fort in Vindoland. The association run by his family was established to support places with educational values.
Scientists suspect that the Epiacum fort was intended to support the defense of Hadrian’s Wall and to secure the extraction of lead. It is one of the highest Roman forts in Britain – it is 330 meters above sea level. There could have been about 480 infantry and 128 cavalry in the camp.
