"Wow is there a tower" in Alderney!

A team from the Guernsey Museums and the Alderney Society in England has identified a Roman fort concealed in a ruin called the Nunnery. The site is believed to be one of the "best-preserved Roman military structures in the world."

Experts suspect that the Nunnery was constructed in the same way as most Northern Roman forts, with a central tower. "The walls are 2.8m (9ft) thick, we don't know how high it was, but it would have been a very big structure - it's as thick as Hadrian's Wall," said Dr Jason Monaghan, Guernsey Museums director.
