Ambleside Roman Fort (Cumbria, UK).
During the Roman army’s conquest of Northern Britain, towards the end of the 1st century AD, a small timber fort was built at the northern tip of Windermere. This was soon abandoned, but a second fort was built in stone early in the 2nd century AD. The fort remained in use until the 4th century AD.
The central headquarters building contained a 1.8-metre (6 ft) square cellar accessed by a stone stairway which probably was used as a strong-room for regimental funds.
To the north of the headquarters building were the two granaries. The floor consisted of flagstones, raised on the still visible supporting walls to allow air to circulate through the vents in the outer walls.
To the south of the headquarters building are the partly excavated remains of the commanding officer’s house, consisting of rooms grouped around an open courtyard.
The model was created from 739 photographs.
