Birdoswald Roman Fort
1800 Years on Hadrian's Wall
This is the story of 1800 years in the life of a fort on Hadrians Wall, from its construction in a boggy wood as part of the Emperor Hadrians frontier in the AD 120s to the lottery-funded study centre opened in 1999.
Bridoswald has been described as the most important single site in the story of research on Hadrian’s Wall. Recent excavation – especially the five years ‘ programme directed by the author – has confirmed this judgement.
