Attested: RC Duroviguto
Where: At or near the Roman fort at Baylham Farm by a crossing of river Gipping at TM114529
Name origin: Duro ‘crossing’ plus PIE *wegh- ‘to transport in a vehicle’ (as in weight and vector, for example).
Notes: The river Gipping was navigable far inland into at least the AD 800s. Duroviguto was probably the same as AI’s Conbretovium and the Peutinger Table’s Convetoni, where Con- presumably refers to the five Roman roads converging there, with bret- related to modern burden, from PIE *bher- ‘to carry’. The two names had essentially the same meaning.
