Arbeia Roman Fort & Museum - nowhere else on Hadrian´s Wall can the sheer scale of Roman achievements be better understood than here. Built around AD160, the stone fort played an essential role in the mighty frontier system - originally built to house a garrison, Arbeia soon became the military supply base for the 17 forts along the Wall. Today, the excavated remains, stunning reconstructions of original buildings and finds from the fort show what life was like in Roman Britain.
