In the last five years, excavations have continued both inside the fort and in the vicus outside. Evidence is slowly accumulating that there was no clear cut off between military and civilian in both areas.
The granaries within the stone fort date from around AD213. 560 seeds were recovered, the majority of cereals but also sedge and dock. Mice were clearly a problem but the find of an owl pellet may suggest that natural control was encouraged as was the case in later times when owl-windows were built in barns.
The temple at the north-west end of the stone fort, close to the north gate, was found in 2009. in front of it were two altars. One was complete with the relief of the weather god, Jupiter Dolichenus, riding a bull with a lightning bolt in one hand and an axe in the other Link
