SH4862 : Segontium

taken 10 years ago, near to Caernarfon, Gwynedd, Great Britain

This is 1 of 8 images, with title Segontium in this square
The Roman fort of Segontium was built in AD77 to house an auxiliary force. It was occupied until AD394. Only foundations of the buildings remain, as stone was probably taken from the site for Edward I's castle below the site. However the fort left its presence in the town's name: caer yn ar Fn - the fort in the land opposite Mn (Anglesey).
The photograph illustrates the commanding position of the fort, high above the Menai strait.
