The Fort

Ribchester (Bremetenacum Veteranorum, SD6434)

Early Flavian fort that was succeeded by a 2.7ha timber late Flavian fort. This was in turn succeeded by a stone fort early in the 2nd century that remained in use into the 4th century.  Garrisoned by Ala II Asturum (late 1st-2nd century?), Numerus equitatum Sarmatarum (2nd-3rd century?) and Cuneus Sarmatarum (3rd-4th century).

[Shotter, D. Romans and Britons in North-West England, Lancaster 1993]
