View of the ruins of Richborough Fort. There was a Roman settlement here from the time of the Roman invasion to the early 5th century. The walls of the huge fort can be seen still standing. There are also impressive ditches and ramparts. It is one of a chain of Roman forts along the south east coast, from Brancaster in Norfolk to Porchester in Hampshire. Unusually, the artist, etcher and publisher is a woman. Mrs Amelia Noel (1759-1818) was a drawing mistress who exhibited landscapes between 1795 and 1804. Kent was one of her favoured locations to draw, alongside the Lake District and Ireland.
