Hadrian's Wall (pt 2/4)

A revealing window on the lives of those who lived on or beside Hadrian's Wall. Hundreds of centurial stones recording the work done by units of the army evoke the actual people involved in constructing the wall; they also remind us of the mixed ethnicity of 'Romans' living there. The range of objects recovered from the soil in places like Housesteads and Vindolanda also reflects this ethnic diversity as well as providing an insight into the everyday lives of the people who lived here.
