The Anavio name

Anavio was one of the earlier forts built in Britannia by the Romans in A.D. 73 during the governorship of Agricola.  Anavio stood at the conjunction of three main Roman roads and it became part of a line of forts in the region, including one at Templeborough, east of Sheffield, and an earlier fort at Chesterfield dating back to Nero.

The name translates as “on the river”. The fort was built in a commanding position to take advantage of the Rivers Bradwell, now just a stream, and Noe.

For a hundred years the fort was on the northernmost edge of the Roman Empire before expansion moved that line to Northumberland and then into the lowlands of Scotland.
