Hadrian's Wall Group

#Tynedale U3A
Hadrian’s Wall Group
We started the Hadrian’s Wall Group six years ago on the web as there was a lot of misinformation and less than half a dozen were covered in any detail out of two dozen sites associated with the Wall. We also describe how the Wall was built, the legion who built it, the garrisons, the history of its occupation and other useful information.

Risingham Roman Fort North of Corbridge on Dere St
There are over 1200 pictures and illustrations; I believe that picture is worth 1000 words. We have had 20,000 visitors
Recently we expanded our guides to all Roman sites north of York as we realised that the Northern Frontier was a single defence system. There are about 60 Roman sites on the Northern Frontier, which was the most heavily manned frontier in the Empire.

Join us on our visits, our 2020 Programme, it’s on the website.
