Military Bath House, Vindolanda Roman Fort
Built in the early third century outside the fort itself as was usual, the bath house was a recreation area for the soldiers. It has the usual variety of heated rooms, hot and cold baths, latrine and a large changing room. Finds made during the excavation of the sewers and drains indicated that the facilities were also used by women and children
Vindolanda Roman Fort :: NY7766
Vindolanda was a Roman auxiliary fort (castrum) just south of Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. Located near the modern village of Bardon Mill, it guarded the Stanegate, the Roman road from the River Tyne to the Solway Firth. It is noted for the Vindolanda Tablets, among the most important finds of military and private correspondence (written with ink on wooden tablets) found anywhere in the Roman Empire.
