Despite being constructed in the 70s AD by an unknown Legion, the first builders at Chester-le-Street of whom we're sure are the 2nd Augusta Legion, who appear to have been responsible for the rebuilding of the fort in stone on top or earlier timber foundations. The dating for this rebuilding is unsure, but probably coincides with the construction of Hadrian's Wall only 10 miles away.
Concangis appears to have been occupied by the auxiliary cavalry unit the 2nd Ala of Asturians (bearing the honorific Antoniniana) though only by fragmented and unconfirmed inscriptions. If the Ala Antoniniana that are definitely attested here are indeed the 2nd Asturian, then that unit were based here some time before 181 AD, by which time they had been posted to Chesters. Chester-le-Street may have been their fort between leaving Ribchester and taking up residence at Chesters. Other than this, the only attested occupants are in the late 4th or early 5th Century and are an irregular auxiliary unit known only as the "Numerus Concangensium" or "Company from Concangis" who have also shown up at Binchester.
Remains and Visit:
There is almost nothing to see now of Concangis. The extremely meagre remains of a granary wall form the base of a modern brick wall in a carpark on Church Chare. This would only interest the real die hard enthusiast.
