Drawing of Porchester Castle
Mounted in album with PAH3772-PAH3793, PAH3795-PAH3801. No. 23 of 30
Porchester Castle, situated at the northern end of Portsmouth Harbour, remains the most impressive and best- preserved of the Roman 'Saxon Shore' forts. It was originally built in the late 3rd century. Covering an area of nearly ten acres, it is the only Roman stronghold in northern Europe whose walls still mainly stand to their full 6 meters. The drawing is undated, but may have been made by Schetky on a 'sketching cruize' with his students early in his tenure of his post as Professor of Drawing at the Royal Naval College at Portsmouth, perhaps around 1813.
Inscribed upper right 'Porchester Castle -'.
