The Roman-built south wall at Portchester Castle, Hampshire

Portchester Castle lies at the head of Portsmouth Harbour. It was first identified as a strategic strongpoint by the Romans who built a series of coastal forts, known as the Forts of the Saxon Shore, during the 3rd century to protect against Saxon pirates. Some 800 years later, the Normans integrated the building of the castle into the existing Roman defences, making the site one of the best-preserved Roman forts in northern Europe.
