Corbridge Roman Town is the only place in the UK where you can walk the original grounds of a Roman high street, boasting excavated remains of granaries, markets, a fountain, and temples.
Corbridge Roman Town,
Walking along the main street of Corbridge Roman Town, through the ruins of granaries, fountain houses, marketplaces, workshops, and Roman temples, visitors may get a sense of the bustling Roman garrison town.
For a long time, the area around Roman Dere Street and Stanegate, now known as Corbridge, was home to many significant forts. However, once Hadrian’s Wall was completed, it became an affluent town and a popular leave-centre for Wall garrisons who were not on duty.
A time capsule of Roman life may still be found in the town’s streets today. On display at the museum are Roman armour and artefacts found in the Corbridge Hoard. We learned a lot about Roman soldiers on the Wall thanks to the Hoard, one of the most important findings in Roman history.
The Corbridge Collection, the biggest of Hadrian’s Walls collections, is also housed at the museum.
