Browsing Posts in Hadrians Wall

Willowford Bridge Abutment is part of Hadrian’s Wall in northern England. Here the masonry was left abandoned by the relentless drift west of the River Irthing forcing the Romans to rebuild in tandem with migration of the river.

Chesters was one of a number of principal forts built to enhance defences of Hadrian’s Wall and provide a base for offensive, northward strikes into enemy territory to the north. The Wall straddled the fort with three of the fort’s gates facing north.

In Britain can be found Temples of Mithras from the Roman period. In London can be seen the high-tech display based on archaeology at Bloomberg offices whilst still in situ at Carrawburgh on Hadrian’s Wall is an original still exposed to the elements.
