Dere Street :: Shared Description

Dere Street is the name given to the Roman road linking north-east England and south-east Scotland. For much of its length Dere Street has remained a routeway, and reused as a Drovers road. Alongside the road, shallow depressions indicate the presence of Roman gravel pits dug to provide material for the carriageway. In Scotland, roads were built by the Romans to link their forts and allow rapid movement of soldiers. Built by soldiers, a Roman road typically consisted of a layer of large cobbles topped with a tightly packed layer of small stones and gravel.
