Birdoswald Roman Fort, Hadrian's Wall

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Today, I am posting information about Birdoswald Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall. Birdoswald Roman Fort was one of the sixteen forts along Hadrian's Wall. It is a natural vantage point, which Roman planners utilised in their favour. The fort was occupied by Roman auxiliaries from 112AD to 400. It is one of the best preserved of the forts along Hadrian's Wall. Today, English Heritage assume the responsibility of the site.
