Lunt Roman Fort in Baginton, Near Coventry

The Lunt is one of my favourite places in the world. The name is unique and seems to mean steep hill in Old English. It may date back to the small Anglo-Saxon era village that appeared in Baginton from the late 6th century onwards.

If you go there now you can see a partially reconstructed Roman fort. An ambitions 1970s project that emerged from the excavations of the multi-period Roman Fort found in the 1960s. After the site was fully excavated the team began reconstruction of building and fortifications as experimental archaeology. The structures today include an impressive gatehouse, ramparts, ditch and granary building.
