|Description ||Stanwick is one huge site, if you could walk round the ramparts you’d cover about 4miles & internally you’ve got 750 acres to get lost in.
The earliest evidence dates the fortifications from the mid to late Iron Age, with occupation waning towards the end of the 1st century AD. It’s likely to have been an important stronghold for the Brigantes & may have been the home of queen Cartimandua, who ruled at the time those chaps from Rome visited.
Theres bundles of evidence from other periods of occupation too.
