The interactive Google map includes brief detail on each of the locations noted along Ermine Street but these can be difficult to access on some devices. The content is replicated here.
The Romans built the city where London now stands, bridging the Thames and creating Londinium. From around AD 50 to 410, this was the largest city in Britannia and a vital international port. The Roman forum was located under Leadenhall Market, with Gracechurch Street replicating the Roman route south to the wooden bridge, and north towards Lincoln via Bishopsgate.
An important late Iron Age settlement at the limit of navigation along the Lea, Braughing became a Romano-british town covering 36 heactares on a low chalk ridge between the River Rib and Ermine Street.
An early fort was short-lived and the first settlement was burnt down in the Boudiccan Revolt. However, the town recovered and expanded to include the second largest mansio complex in Britain.
A short-lived fort by the Nene bridge gave way to a significant town with extensive pottery and iron production. It was also a centre for agricultural administration.
Encircled on three sides by the River Gwash, the Romano-British settlement at Great Casterton on the north bank of the river close to a Claudian auxiliary fort.
A small, yet walled, Roman town on Ermine Street preceded by a fort and an extensive Iron Age settlement.
Lincoln was first garrisoned by the Ninth Legion Hispana (which moved on to York c AD 71), then by the Second Legion Adiutrix, which then went on to Chester. The fortress became a “colonia” settlement for retired soldiers, and the town grew to include forum, baths, temples, shops and walls.
Winteringham (Ad Abum)
This settlement lies on the south bank of the Abus Fluvius (River Humber) directly south of the large settlement on the opposite bank at Petuaria (Brough-on-Humber). The river is very wide at this point so the crossing was probably made via ferryboat.
An early fort and port that became a civitas, capital of the territory of the Parisi.
Stamford Bridge (Derventio)
At a crossing point of the Derwent there was a minor Roman town. Recent research suggests the road from Brough came via Stamford Bridge rather than the more direct route previously assumed.
The Romans built their impressive fortress between the Foss and the Ouse where the minster now stands. It was a major military base with strategically important transport links.
The Roman town of Segelocum was located at the fording point of the River Trent by the road between Danum (Doncaster) and Lindum (Lincoln). It is referenced in both the fifth and eighth Antonine Itineraries.
The fortlet ½-mile east of Bawtry guards the crossing over the Itchen of the Lincoln-York road. The road passes 30m outside its north-eastern defences.
Danum was the site of two Roman forts – one Flavian one and the other a smaller Trajanic/Hadrianic fort. It was of particular military importance being on the border between the powerful and truculent Brigante tribe north of the River Don and the more amenable Coritani to the south.
The Romans fort was positioned to control the crossing over the River Aire. The fort was in an area now bounded by Church Street, Carlton Street and Bradley Street. A civilian settlement grew up immediately to the south-west in the area of modern Welbeck Street.
The Roman settlement lay at the crossing of the River Wharfe by the Roman road between York and Doncaster. Just to the north, at Newton Kyme, two Roman forts, an associated vicus, and two Roman camps have been identified; this may point to an earlier crossing point of the Wharfe.
