At the Vindolanda Charitable Trust, we believe in history and archaeology for all. Ever since our foundation we have been working tirelessly to make our sites more accessible.

The Roman Army Museum is a fully indoor attraction, located within the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site in the Northumberland countryside. The Museum uses a combination of Artefacts and Audio-Visual displays to bring life in the Roman Army to life.
