Part of a Roman camp on Huntington South Moor. The site was not identified until 2002, but RAF photographs taken in the early 1950s show the full extent of the camp prior to the construction of the sports stadium which now overlies the eastern part of the camp. The photographs depict the site as playing card shaped, with the low bank and outer ditch forming a round cornered rectangle. The camp's long axis runs north east to south west. The surviving remains include the western corner of the camp, which is the best preserved section, though further earthworks are still traceable on the ground. The site has been interpreted as either a practice camp, constructed for training purposes, or a temporary camp, occupied during the construction of the fortress of Eboracum in the early 70s AD.
