BROUGHAM 08A - Brocavvm Roman Fort
Brocavvm Roman Fort, Penrith in the Eden Valley, Cumbria.
The site of Brocavvm Roman Fort built by Legion V111 in 76AD to defend the crossing point of the rivers Lowther and Eamont. The fort would have been manned by more than a thousand men. A small settlement developed nearby to serve the fort and take advantage of passing trade between Carlisle and the port at Ravenglass. Brougham Castle can be seen in the distance behind the trees..
