Vindolanda

Vindolanda and Roman Army Museum, was a Roman auxiliary fort just south of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland, located near the village of Bardon Mill. Although first built by the Roman army before Hadrian’s Wall, Vindolanda became an important construction and garrison base for the Wall, a Hadrian’s Wall fort in its own right.
