Archaeologists Have Found a German Bunker on an Island Inside an Ancient Roman Fort
“We saw how the Germans built a bunker for personnel right inside the old Roman tower”, - said the head of the excavation, archaeologist Dr. Jason Monaghan.
The fortification was placed clearly on the inner side of the 3-meter-thick walls. During World War II, the entire population of the island was evacuated before the occupation. It housed two forced labor camps and the only two concentration camps on British soil where thousands of people were sent.
"The curse of excavations in the convent is the number of sewers and utilities that cross the territory of many periods. The one Jason points to is draining surface water from where the complex around the market was likely located. It descends steeply before meeting a canal that cut a meter in the wall of a carriage store in 1793", - the researchers noted.
