Oxford Archaeology North (OAN) (formerly Lancaster University Archaeological Unit)
undertook a watching brief, in November 2001, along the western end of the main street in
Bowness-on-Solway, Cumbria (NY 224 628), on behalf of British Telecom Wholesale. The site
lay within the Roman fort of Maia, the westernmost fort on Hadrian's Wall, which is a Scheduled
Ancient Monument (SM 26126). The aim of the watching brief was to record any significant
deposits uncovered during minor excavations, within the fort, associated with the installation of
underground ducts for communications' cables.
