Canovium Roman Fort

The Romans built their temporary wooden fort with an earthen rampart and two ditches in 75 AD and, later in about 150 AD, they rebuilt it with stone. In 200 AD the fort was destroyed but it seems some form of occupation occurred in the 4th century, only to be completely destroyed around 400 AD. After that there may well have been Romano-British occupation when a 5th or 6th century prince or king of Gwynedd called Rhun set up a camp or settlement here.
