English: Carrawburgh is a settlement in Northumberland. In Roman times, it was the site of a 1.5 hectare (3½ acre) auxiliary fort on Hadrian's Wall called Brocolitia, Procolita, or Brocolita The fort there was the Wall's northernmost point, and just over a mile west of the nearest milecastle, Milecastle 30. It either used the Wall itself as its northern rampart, or was built parallel to it but detached. It certainly postdates both the Wall and the vallum (which it is built across).
Norsk bokmål: I romersk tid var det på stedet en liten festning for støttetroppene, auxilia, på rundt 14 000 m² (3½ acre) i Hadrians mur ved navn Brocolitia, Procolita, eller Brocolita . Festningen der var murens nordligste punkt, og akkurat over en og en halv km vest for det nærmeste milfestning, Milecastle 30 . Festningen i Carrawburgh brukte enten muren i seg selv som en nordlig festningsvoll, eller var bygd parallelt til muren, men frittstående. Den er med sikkerhet datert til etter at muren ble konstruert og dens vallum (som den var bygget på tvers over).
