With yet another lockdown in place, I've been trying to mix my morning dog walks a little, as to be frank I'm getting bored of seeing the same things every day. I'd usually head to the beach on a Saturday morning and watch the sunrise over the sea. Today we (the dog and I), stuck to a walk around the village. It was beautifully clear with a good frost and we watched the sunrise over the remains of Caister Roman Fort. <center>![AFC106E56A5C42B2AD948A5B88DC7B63.jpeg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/stav/UcG7SQ30-AFC106E5-6A5C-42B2-AD94-8A5B88DC7B63.jpeg) </center> The fort was built around 200 AD and was occupied until the end of the 4th century. The fort had a garrison of between 500 and a 1000 men although nobody is sure whether these would have been army or navy. The landscape is very different these days, the fort would have sat on an island when it was originally built and modern day Great Yarmouth would have been an estuary. Discoveries during the dig suggested women and children were also living within the fort.
