Lunt Roman Fort
Lunt Roman Fort is a partially reconstructed turf and timber Roman fort dated to AD 60, with a unique 'gyrus', or circular training area for horses, a rebuilt granary, timber gateway and fort ramparts.
The fort at Lunt was built at the time of Queen Boudicca's revolt against the Romans in Britain, possibly as a supply depot and army headquarters.
What makes the fort at Lunt so intriguing is that it has been partially reconstructed by the Royal Engineers, using traditional tools and techniques that the Romans would have employed, so that visitors can get a sense of what it might have looked like when new. The Engineers built an imposing timber gateway with adjoining ramparts, one of the granary buildings, and the gyrus
Lunt is frequently used for school groups and educational visits and is a great place to give children a taste of life in Roman Britain.
