Close to the Air Museum in Baginton, is the Lunt Roman Fort, once inhabited by the Roman Army. This ancient site provides a fascinating snapshot of Roman military life.

The Lunt is a partial reconstruction of a First Century Roman Fort and dates from AD 60, the time of Boudica's rebellion. In AD 64 it was adapted to become a cavalry training centre and is unique in Britain as it is the only fort with a gyrus, a wooden ring used for training horses and riders. A replica granary houses the Museum of the Roman Army.
