(Brough on Fosse) Nottinghamshire, England.
This small settlement on the
Fosse Way, mentioned in the Antonine Itinerary
vs and VIII), is 4.8 km N of Newark, and known largely
from air photographs. Buildings of timber and of stone
lined both sides of the Fosse Way and straggled along
several irregular branching lanes. The entire settlement
covered ca. 4.8 ha. At an unknown date defenses incorporating two broad ditches were built astride the main
road. There has been no excavation, but the discovery
of a bronze cheekpiece from a helmet suggests a Roman
fort in the vicinity.
