Vindobala Roman Fort, Rudchester
Vindobala Roman Fort, Rudchester
There is little now to see of the remains of Vindobala apart from a raised area of grass and low banks hinting to the buildings below. It was the fourth fort from the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall. Excavations in 1897, 1902 and 1924 revealed much of its history. It was built as part of the Wall and was in use for some 400 years. Around the fort there was an extensive civilian settlement. The photo shows the southern, largest part of the fort which is cut in two by the Military Road built on the foundations of Hadrian's Wall
