On the half-day tour, you focus on the fort at the east end of the wall – Segedunum. The fort is home to fantastic reconstructions of the Roman way of life – such as a section of the wall which can be viewed and walked along. You step into the Roman world and learn about this fantastic, ruthless but creative culture that conquered much of the known world. The tour starts at the fort of Segedunum – now called Wallsend.
Home to the mixed cavalry and infantry unit of Belgians and troops from France- the second cohort of Nervians and the fourth cohort of Lingones these troops were stationed to ensure that the frontier was not crossed by the river as much as by attacking the wall.
