Have been here a couple of times and will always make time for Vindolanda. To think of the history of the people and what they endured is mind boggling.

Housesteads Roman fort certainly does not disappoint. The Museum and visitor centre are modest, but the fort is an outstanding example of a Roman Infantry fort. There are plenty of ruins on the site including the best preserved Roman Latrines in the UK and the...More
