Rather English - Visit Burgh Castle

Burgh Castle is a third century Roman fort overlooking the River Waveney in the Norfolk Broads. Some believe the fort was Gariannonum, one of nine forts referred to in Notitia Dignitatum - a rare surviving document of Roman administration - constructed by the Saxon Shore military command to defend against Saxon raids in East Anglia.

One of the best preserved Roman monuments in the country, the castle free and open to the public, owned by the Norfolk Archaeological Trust, with the walls in the care of English Heritage.
