Learn Latin, Languages & History on Hadrian's Wall


Run by the Vindolanda Trust Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum offer a fascinating insight into Roman life on Hadrian’s Wall.

The subject of a multi-million pound refurbishment project in 2011, both museums now offer world-class facilities and a very memorable day out.

Catherine runs a half-day tour of Vindolanda, as well as whole day tours that can also take in the Roman Army Museum or Housesteads.

Catherine’s Vindolanda tour includes:

• The early 3rd Century Bath House, Headquarters Building and Commanding Officer’s House, along with the different forts, timber and stone, which occupied the site;

• The buildings within the vicus (the village adjoining the fort);

• The reconstructed stone turret and timber milecastle, the Roman temple, shop, house, milestone and 18th Century crofters’ ‘bothy’;

• An explanation of the fort’s role in the British Roman occupation and the wider Roman Empire, as well as mention of the post-Roman settlers, from the early Christians to the Border Reivers and the antiquarians;

• A visit to the Vindolanda Museum (Chesterholm), where you will be able to see some of the famous Writing Tablets, along with a vast and impressive array of military and domestic artefacts recovered from the site.
