Abstract:
The earthworks of a Roman fortlet, and those of a second enclosure which seems to be a detached annexe, are described and set in context. There is no direct evidence for the date of the construction of the fortlet, but a brief survey of broadly analogous sites in northern England and southern Scotland suggests that a late first-century context would be appropriate. Longshaws seems to have been one of a small number of sites across the Border counties that may have been put in place to support a network of patrols during the early phases of the occupation. It is possible that tents may have occupied the interior, and that the annexe contained the horses. The conscious use of natural defences in the choice of the sites of fortlets and of forts is common and has not been given sufficient emphasis.
