Abstract:
Four trenches were inserted, their spatial distribution ensuring that any monument approximating to the dimensions of Hadrian's Wall Milefortlet 10 would be encountered. A walk-over of the site strongly suggested that the study area had been disturbed by recent cultural activity, confirmed by a housing development to the north and former use as a holiday camp during the mid to later 20th century. A modern service and a modern pit were uncovered during the fieldwork. Examination of the geological sequence beneath modern topsoil illustrated past dune formation overlying water-lain sand and to the east gravel and pebbles. Beneath the sand was a clay deposit that extended into the fields to the south (Bennett pers comm.). It would appear highly likely that if the Roman coastal defence did extend northwards towards Milefortlet 10 at Skinburness, then the alignment has been lost to coastal erosion.
