Visit Hadrian's Wall
Hadrian’s Wall Virtual Tour - Vindolanda Roman Fort & Museum
Day 6 of our tour takes us to one of the most visited sites on the Roman frontier and one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe. Vindolanda Roman Fort lies just south of Hadrian's Wall, on the Stanegate Road, a line of communication which predates the Wall. Set in stunning surroundings, the Fort was a key part of the roman frontier throughout Roman Britain. The site’s museum houses a world class collection of artefacts including the famous Vindolanda writing tables, voted the British Museum’s top treasure.
