2 Willowford (Northumberland): ‘Narrow’ gauge wall built on the north front of the already-constructed broad foundation. 41 42 T H E E V O L U T I O N O F T H E F R O N T I E R position between Housesteads and Chesters, and which was perhaps itself an ‘afterthought’ to shorten what was otherwise a rather long interval between forts. Unlike the Wall’s northern ditch, the vallum-ditch was flatbottomed, about five feet in width and approximately 10 feet deep with steeply sloping sides. North and south of the ditch there was a cleared strip (or berm), which was bounded by continuous running mounds.

The two armies met up at the western end of the Stainmore Pass, for the march to Carlisle; the large and well-preserved campaigncamp at Rey Cross-on-Stainmore is almost certainly a relic of this phase of activity. The subsequent advance into Scotland saw, amongst other things, the establishment of a large, part-legionary fort at Newstead, the purpose of which was to secure the protection of the Votadini, another of Rome’s grain-producing regional allies. Cerialis was succeeded in 74 by another high-profile senator, Sextus Julius Frontinus: although he can hardly have left the north unattended, he is credited by Tacitus chiefly with the completion of the conquest of southern and mid-Wales, giving Rome access to reserves of gold, silver, lead and copper.

The Wall was provided with a ‘V’ -shaped military ditch on its northern side. Recent work at Byker (Newcastle) has THE EVOLUTION OF THE FRONTIER demonstrated a previously unsuspected feature between the Wall itself and the northern ditch: three closely set parallel rows of large post-pits indicate the presence of a running obstacle which perhaps consisted of sections of tree-trunk, infilled with brambles, creating the equivalent of a ‘barbed wire emplacement’. Whether this ran along the whole Wall, or was restricted to the eastern end currently remains unclear.
