Entrance to the Bath House and the Treasury

Entrance to the Bath House and the Treasury

Chesters, the Roman Cilurnum, was one of several military stations that were enlarged between 122 and 127 a.d. The photograph (bottom) shows the recesses in the north-east corner of the camp. The Roman doorway (top left) led to that conspicuous feature of military recreation, the bath-house and regimental institute. Not less important was the treasury. The stone vault shown in the photograph (top right) was the roof of the strong room, and when unearthed it was found closed by a door. The treasury was incorporated in the headquarters building.
