Marching camp construction
#17
Thank you for the links. 
I recall watching a documentary (YouTube) where an archaeologists thought that he had found evidence of the night camp, the problem was only a few artefacts had been found in the area but he did argue that the location which was in a clearing near the edge of the forest was a highly probable location. Frustratingly, I can’t remember the name of the documentary but if I find it again I’ll be sure to post a link. 
To be honest I really don’t think that it’s possible to find any hard evidence of that night camp, the archaeologists would probably be better off looking for evidence of the continued slaughter which happened as the remaining Men of the legions made a run for it. Perhaps if enough Roman artefacts were excavated in a particular area they could potentially indicate the probable area of the camp.

A link to brief article on the temporary camp at Kalkriese.
