This evening I am posting some images from a recent visit to Housesteads Fort on Hadrian’s Wall.

This is one of the most iconic sites of the Roman Empire and was known as Vercovicium. The fort was an addition to the Wall and covers two hectares. The overall layout of the fort changed little over nearly 300 years of occupation.

Here is an image of the granaries which are above ground level to keep the grain dry and free form vermin.


Here is the Wall passing through the landscape.
