Vol. 06: Excavations at Bowes and Lease Rigg Roman Forts

The Roman fort at Bowes lay on the main road connecting York with Carlisle, and thence to one of the principal invasion-routes into Scotland; thus situated, it must have played an integral role in the military history of Roman Britain. At a height of c.290m (950 ft) above sea-level it guarded the eastern approach to the Stainmore Pass across the Pennines at National Grid Reference NY 993 134.

Reports on the excavations at the Roman fort of Bowes, carried out 1966 to 1970, and those at Lees Rigg between 1976 and 1980. Bowes lay on the main road between York and Carlisle - the principal invasion-route into Scotland; whilst Lease Rigg was a consequence of Roman deployment into the North York Moors. The excavations were, in both cases, carried out in trenches designed to confirm the size, lay-out and date of occupation of each fort. The report on each fort has its own section on the analysed artefacts.
