Vindolanda (Hexham)

Originally built before Hadrian’s wall began construction, this historic site would become a crucial base integrated into the importance of the wider wall. Used for a staggering 400 years prior to the Romans this fortress was eventually abandoned during the 9th century.  Amongst the remains at the Vindolanda site are two Roman bath houses, a number of military barracks, and a unique experience to view the first and only temple to be found within an auxiliary base within the entire Roman empire. As well as all the fascinating archaeological remains on offer to your students the site also boasts a world class museum which combines artefacts with archaeological interpretation and technology to display the history of this impressive fort. As archaeological works continue throughout the site the museum is constantly developing and extending its collection, undergoing an expansion in 2018 which features unique items such as an ancient toilet seat and even children’s toys.
