Segedunum Roman Fort

© Segedunum Roman Fort

Segedunum Roman Fort is at Hadrian's Wall's most eastern end, at the point where the Wall meets the River Tyne. It was garrisoned by 600 soldiers; 480 infantry and 120 cavalry. There is evidence that soldiers from Belgium and, later, the Fourth Lingones unit from France, made it their home.  

Today, visitors to Segedunum Roman Fort & Museum can have a bird's eye view of the fort and the landscape from a 35m high Viewing Tower and tour the reconstructed Bath House. Visitors to the museum can see armour and spearheads, a miniature shrine, coins and even the only stone toilet seat ever found in Roman Britain! All found on the most excavated fort on Hadrian's Wall.

The Learning Team offers a variety of facilitated activities and free self-led resources to inspire the imagination.
