Untitled[edit]

There are two items on this page I would like to discuss.

  1. The title of Rutupiae. Shouldn't the main title be "Richborough Roman Fort", as this is in more common usage.
  2. Is it known as Richborough Castle? Official sources, such as English Heritage, call it a Roman Fort. After all, castles are a 9th century invention.

This would inconsistant with other articles in Category:Roman towns and cities in England. Walgamanus 20:16, 7 February 2007 (UTC)

I think this is a fantastic article with little room for improvement. The only criticism I have is that I would like to see a little blurb about the debate going on over whether Rutupiae was the landing site for the invasion. While I see that you do have a link that goes in depth on the debate, I feel a sentence or two on the debate within this article would be helpful.

-Jeff J (Roman Civ Class)

Great depth and breadth in the content for this article. I agree with Jeff that the debated section, although clearly linked to the page discussing it, is a little unclear. You could just add a few words about the debate and that would clear it up. Also, if there happens to be any information on the people who are associated with Rutupiae, that would be an interesting addition. Well written!

Jenny B (Roman Civ.)

This is a very well written article. You provide a lot of great information (and pictures)! I really don't have many suggestions, although I would just re-read it for some awkward sentence structure during the debate section, which would clear up those problems mentioned above.

Taylor K (Roman Civ.)

Very well done. This is clear, precise, and uses sources and images excellently. You have truly contributed something worthwhile here. Anisekstrong 22:42, 21 May 2007 (UTC)Anisekstrong

I'm from the area and i've always known it as Richborough Castle or as Richborough Roman Fort and i was always under the impression the the castle bit comes from its Saxon name.(Morcus (talk) 23:31, 10 April 2008 (UTC))
