Aerial view of Caerhun Church, July 2018. Many thanks to Mark Walters and Caru Conwy.
The picture shows the Canovium fort interior including the internal roads (wider brown lines) and buildings (thin rectangles and squares). The main defensive rampart surrounds all of these features.
Outside the fort to the north the wide brown line of the Roman road heading north can be seen, and alongside this are the mostly rectangular external settlement buildings. Down by the river, all of the rooms of the bath house can be seen.
