Richborough Roman Fort

Richborough Roman Fort was erected during the Roman invasion and is where Emperor Claudius' invading forces probably landed in AD 43. Roman Rutupiae remained one of the province's most important ports, and was later the headquarters of the troops responsible for repelling the Germanic sea-borne raiders. The massive walls still impress and can be seen from the banks of the River Stour, but no longer from the sea, now 3km distant.
