What was life like living on the edge of the Roman Frontier? Meet our Roman Legionary stationed at the famous Housesteads Roman Fort and he’ll tell you. Our soldier recalls the building of the wall which took over 7 years to build and you can see what life was like in the Roman army. Dramatic presentations with costumed actors will take place throughout each day.
