Media Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum, Wallsend, England Monday, 26 June 2022 Looking from inside the 35-metre-high viewing tower at Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum. The tower provides views of the excavated remains of Segedunum, which was a Roman fort at the easternmost end of Hadrian’s Wall, located close to the River Tyne at Wallsend, near Newcastle upon Tyne. The fort was in use for approximately 300 years from about 122 AD up to around 400AD. A bust of Emperor Hadrian at Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum.

The photo shows two beds and weaponry including a sword and large round shield. Tony touching Hadrian’s Wall. Here the wall only survives to about ground level. The width of the wall can be seen: when construction of the wall began it was built to 3 metres (10 feet) wide but this was soon reduced to 2.4 metres (8 feet).
