Iconic architecture, highly skilled soldiers and an impressive Empire! These are a few of the common associations with Ancient Rome and here in Britain we’re lucky enough to have one of the Romans most monumental creations: the 73 mile Hadrian’s Wall.
As well as providing spectacular views and fascinating forts along the way, this summer English Heritage have in place a great range of events at a number of these forts to celebrate all things Roman and help inspire get kids and adults alike.
Whether finding out the history of Houseteads Fort from a Roman soldier or witnessing the colourful Roman soldiers as they practice their combat skills and battle tactics in a full scale battle with Roman Gladiators at Chesters Roman Fort, there’s lots happening across the Wall this Summer. See below for a full itinerary of summer events!
