The Roman remains on this site are the most extensive of any of the fort`s and settlements on Hadrian`s Wall.
The site is lovely from the site of the work to the walk around garden`s streams which house reconstructions of past life which tell remarkable tales of life at Vindolanda.
Moving on we headed to the town of Hexham. We wandered around this medieval town. Narrow streets and old buildings tell the age of this old town.
Here you can step back in time. Imagine the life at the fort for some 500 troops with the headquarters building and elaborate commandant`s house.
Our last stop was the Roman Army Museum . Here you can wander around completling tasks and watching dvd`s of life along the wall. The museum is a must to visit. The 3d film The Eagle`s Eye gives you an aerial view of the wall as it is today then transports you back nearly 2000 years to Roman times a very memorable time travel experience.
