Excavations at Barbury Castle in 1969

"... 3.5km (2ΒΌ miles) south of Wroughton: a possible Roman Camp, with a single entrance defended by an external clavicula looking south to Barbury Castle hill-fort, has been identified from crop marks." (Britannia, 1970)

This tentatively identified Roman camp was evidently built to control the population of the Iron-Age hillfort at Barbury Castle which lies just to the south of the Roman encampment.

See: Britannia i 1970 p.299.
