Podcastellum 8: Milecastles

For years (well, at least since 2013) I have been promising to interview Dr Matt Symonds on the subject of milecastles. Not only is Matt the editor of Current Archaeology, but he is also a leading specialist on Roman fortlets and that special sub-type of those diminutive fortifications: Hadrian’s Wall milecastles.

Finally, whilst attending the 2015 Limes Congress in Bavaria, and sitting outside an extremely congenial reception held for us in the Kelten Römer Museum at Manching, we had a chance to chat about fortlets, milecastles, and Hadrian’s Wall.
