The water-supply of the Roman Fort at Lyne
Tanks Cisterns, Fort
The fort is located high above the water-table in their valleys, and impossibly deep well-digging would be required to reach any good supply. In the excavation of 1901, a number of tanks, cisterns and sewers were identified and these are re-interpreted as part of the system for water supply. It is difficult to determine, however, if these features were all of one period as there is evidence for both Antonine and Flavian occupation at Lyne.
