Corbidge Roman Excavations
Corbidge Roman Excavations
Located 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of Hadrian's Wall and sitting astride the intersection of Roman Dere Street and Stanegate, Corbridge was initially the site of a series of important forts. But after Hadrian's Wall was fully commissioned it developed into a prosperous town.

Abandoned after the collapse of Roman rule in Britain, the town centre has been systematically excavated. It is currently in the guardianship of English Heritage and is open as a visitor attraction, including a site museum.
