Archaeological Reconstructions

Two reconstructions of Hadrian's Wall (the real thing was built about a mile north of here). On the left is an early banked earth and wood structure which would have lasted less than ten years before it needed replacement. It reproduces one of the gatehouses, through which people passed to trade.On the right is a more permanent stone version of the same section of wall. At the castrum at Vindolanda.
