In a low-lying Northumberland valley, where Hadrian’s Wall bridged the North Tyne, lie the impressive remains of Chesters Roman Fort – the home of the ala II Asturum (Second Asturian Cavalry Unit) for more than 200 years. Uncovered in a series of 19th-century excavations by the influential antiquary John Clayton and his descendants, the remains of many of the key buildings of the Roman fort can be seen, including the impressive baths.
Many of the important objects amassed by Clayton and his family are on display in the museum, and reveal a fascinating story of life on the Roman frontier.
This fully revised guidebook includes newly commissioned reconstruction drawings of the barracks, headquarters building, baths and bridge, a new feature on John Clayton and his wider family and an expanded section on the Clayton Museum and the many important objects on display.
