Roman Camp, Cambridge

History of Roman Camp

Cyril Fox in 1923 (The Archaeology of the Cambridge Region) describes at the G.E. Railway Station scanty remains of the earthwork of what may have been a Roman camp lying just to the east of what may have been a Roman camp lying just to the east of the Roman road, Red Cross-Cambridge, close to the Hills Road railway bridge, and apparently bisected by the wall of the cattle market, were, until recently, visible. The greater part of the the work was destroyed in building the goods station. Fragmentary pottery from the site is in the Cambridge Museum.
