line of the vallum, and between the ditch and the north agger. It keeps parallel with the vallum, which at this point is also parallel with the wall ; but where the vallum makes its noticeable deflection to the south-west the road continues in the straight line, and in order that it may do this a considerable length of the north agger has been removed to make way for it. After the road approaches Down Hill it makes an S curve and sweeps round the hill to avoid passing over the highest point. The vallum meanwhile keeps to the south flank of the hill.

Of the sections generally it may be said that though not much was found in the way of actual remains they have given us more accurate surveys of the exact present contour of the earthworks than anything that has yet been made.

The members of the committee hope that the antiquarian public will be sufficiently interested in the important questions relating to the history of Roman Britain which may be elucidated by researches of this kind to furnish them with funds for the excavation of at least one mile-castle and one camp in the ensuing season.
