Housesteads Roman Fort

Recommended
The fort (2 ha) is perched high on the ridge and is the most complete example of forts built along Hadrian's Wall. Still clearly visible are the foundations of the large courtyard house of the commandant, the granaries, barracks, headquarters building, the four main gateways, the hospital and the latrine block, as well as part of the civilian settlement, clustering around the south gate.
