Lunt Roman Fort: Lunt Roman fort is a partial reconstruction of a fort established in AD60 following the Boudiccan rebellion. Visitors entering the fort do so by the reconstructed Eastern Gateway which is built entirely of timber and is based on depictions from Trajan's column. One of the most interesting features in the fort is a unique large circular construction identified as the gyrus, which was the cavalry training ring. Also on the site are the Museum of Roman Military Life which has many archaeological finds and a model of the Roman fort as it appeared in 64AD. Re-enactments of military manoeuvres is an event which is held at the site.
