Hadrian's wall as it approaches

Wallsend.

In the foreground the slumping, and later rebuilding of the Roman wall can be seen. Then there is the modern stretch of wall, reconstructed behind the actual wall. At the end of the exposed section are the 'cippi', posts marking the position of the Roman defensive stakes. In the middle distance, on the left of the road (Buddle Street) the concrete and grass layout of the northern part of the fort can be seen. To the right of Buddle Street are the current excavations. Finally, lurking under the title of Current

Archaeology is a mass of scaffolding which conceals the new viewing platform from which the visitor will be able to see the whole fort at a glance.
