History of Roman route

Cyril Fox (1923) in Archaeology of the Cambridge Area refers to : another(minor) work, possibly of similar date, is Reach Lode, which runs form the end of Devil’s Dyke at Reach to the Rover Camb near Upware. Roman remains have been found along the whole length of the ancient causeway which runs parallel to the Lode.
