Stoke Abbott, Dorsetshire, England.
A long flat-topped hill on which a Roman fort
was constructed ca. A.D. 45 and dismantled ca. 65. More
than half the hill has been removed in stone quarrying,
but the remainder on the E side was excavated in 1959-69. The partial plan of timber buildings was revealed, including barrack-blocks, principia, praetorium, and a large building which may have been a hospital or second praetorium, as well as latrine-pits and water-holes. The excavations also produced a wealth of equipment associated, as at Hod Hill, with both legionaries and auxiliaries,
much of which is now in the Bridport Museum.
