Description

Set among the ancient wooded valleys of Northumberland the fort of Chesters is the best preserved example of a Roman cavalry fort in Britain. It was one of a series of permanent troop bases added to Hadrian's Wall soon after the Wall was first built in AD122-23. This fully illustrated guidebook contains a tour of the substantial remains at Chesters, including the fort itself, the famous bath house, and the remains of the Roman bridge which carried Hadrian's Wall across the Tyne. A full historical account sets the fort in the wide context of the Roman presence in northern Britain.show more
