Further work in 1988 at Camp A confirmed the existence of a timber-revetted rampart each side of the secondary gateway. The SE ditch was traced. At Camp B indications of a gravel rampart were found and the ditch was identified at the SE corner (Frere 1989, 259-260).
Excavation 1989 and 1990 (Prof Jones): revealed six timber buildings, four of which may have been barracks. The buildings were c.4.25m wide with internal divisions. A ditch and what may have been the remains of a rampart were identified (Frere 1991, 223-4).
Work by Prof.Jones in 1991 examined four buildings (poss barrack blocks) and a possible stores structure (Frere 1992, 256).
Site A excavated 1984-8. Site B
Trial excavation in 1984 followed by six seasons of excavation from 1986 to 1991. Site displays a complex geomorphological history. Barri Jones' interpretation of the site is not universally accepted (Silvester, R J, 2008).
