The remains of a Romano-British settlement at Grandford, Cambridgeshire, were identified by aerial photography. The site lies northwest of the modern town of March and likely lay along the Roman road conventionally known as the Fen Causeway that began at the Roman fort of Longthorpe. The site's extent may have been on the order of 40 acres.

fort, settlement


Aerial photographs published in 2000 led to the conclusion that the site preserves the remains of two superimposed forts. The larger of the two measures approximately 140 by 100 meters. The earlier fort, perhaps corresponding to the account of Tacitus, may date ca. 47 CE while the later fort is post-Boudiccan in date.
