1 Information about ribbon development along the Watling Street, from Oswald’s work during the 1950s. Much pottery of all periods was found in the two fields east of the camp and north of Watling Street indicating Roman ribbon development. Coins have been reported from Witherley and the general picture is of considerable settlement outside the camp particularly in the 3rd century and 4th century.
