The remains of what is believed to be a Roman fort dating back almost 2,000 years have been discovered beneath fields in Great Urswick.
Archaeologist Steve Dickinson, of Trinity Gardens, Ulverston, predicted the presence of the site in a report he wrote about Urswick church last year.
He said he suspected there were remains of a permanent Roman military base in the area because of the large amounts of unusual sandstone masonry that kept appearing in Urswick.
Mr Dickinson spent months researching the project on the Internet before discovering an old aerial photograph of the Urswick site which convinced him there was a fort in the fields.
