Corbridge Roman Site

UK»England»Northumberland»Corbridge Roman Site

Corbridge Roman Site: On the pivotal intersection of Roman Dere Street and Stanegate near the Tyne crossing, Corbridge played a vital role in every Roman campaign in northern Britain. The first forts here were founded c. AD 79-85 during the campaigns into Scotland under Agricola; the third in association with Hadrian's Wall; the last used during the campaigns of Antoninus Pius in the mid-2nd century. Corbridge then became a busy garrison town. The extensively excavated remains include a fountain house with an aqueduct, a pair of granaries, and walled military compounds containing barracks, temples, houses and a headquarters building with a belowground strongroom. You can even walk on the original Stanegate Roman road, which predated Hadrian's Wall and passes through the centre of the site. The museum displays a rich selection of Roman finds, and has extensive handling collections for schools of real and replica Roman objects, including armour. An audio tour is provided to guide you around the site.
