Chesterís Roman Fort

Known to the Romans as 'Cilurnum', Chester’s Fort was built to guard the Roman Bridge which carried Hadrian's Wall and the military road over the River North Tyne. Chester’s was one of the series of permanent forts added during the construction of the Wall: occupied for nearly three centuries, it housed a garrison of some 500 troops, by the 3rd century a cavalry regiment from Asturias in northern Spain.
Join Georgina Plowright, English Heritage Curator for Hadrian's Wall, on a guided tour of Chester’s Roman Fort. You will be able to see behind the scenes at the museum as well as take a look at the hundreds of artefacts from the Clayton collection displayed in the museum.
This is an English Heritage members' event which is taking place on Thursday 16 February. For more information click here or call 0870 333 1181.
