EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the Beacon Roman Fortlet, a remarkable archaeological site situated in Martinhoe, Devon. Perched precariously on the rugged north Devon coastline, this ancient fortification and signalling station now faces an uncertain future due to relentless coastal erosion. Dating back to the 1st century AD, this Roman fortlet holds immense historical significance. Its earthworks span approximately 80 meters in circumference and were meticulously excavated by archaeologists during the 1960s. The excavation yielded fascinating evidence of occupation within the camp, shedding light on life during that era. The photograph showcases the stunning landscape surrounding the fortlet, with its dramatic cliffs serving as a backdrop. The aerial perspective offers a unique glimpse into both its grandeur and vulnerability as it teeters on the edge of oblivion. Preserving such cultural heritage sites is crucial for understanding our past and connecting with our ancestors' stories. However, despite efforts to protect it from coastal erosion's inevitable effects, time seems to be running out for this magnificent relic of history. Thanks to Historic England Archive's dedication to capturing these moments through photography prints like this one, we can appreciate and reflect upon these significant landmarks even if they may not stand forever.
