For more than 350 years the Roman Army maintained forts on Hadrian's Wall, as on all the other frontier zones of its huge empire. Excavations have now revealed what a typical fort looked like and how generations of soldiers lived, and died, to keep the Roman Peace intact. This work aims to bring the Roman fort to life and should be suitable for use in key stages 2 and 3 of the history National Curriculum.
