Housesteads Hadrian's Wall Roman Britain Tour

Saturday, August 30, 2008

This evening I am posting some images from a recent visit to Housesteads Fort on Hadrian's Wall.

This is one of the most iconic sites of the Roman Empire and was known as Vercovicium. The fort was an addition to the Wall and covers two hectares. The overall layout of the fort changed little over nearly 300 years of occupation.

Here is an image of the granaries which are above ground level to keep the grain dry and free form vermin.

Here is the Wall passing through the landscape.

Chedworth Roman Villa Tour

Wednesday, January 23, 2008

This afternoon I am presenting few images from a recent visit to the famous Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucestershire, England

Roman Britain is one of my key passions and visitors should view the Roman tours section of my main website:

Most of Chedworth is enclosed Here is a pic of the hypocaust system-an early form of underfloor central heating.
Here is a mosaic for which Chedworth is famous.
Hopefully, in June I will be leading a Roman Britain tour which should yield many more images of villas and the like.
