Our son arrived on Friday evening. Yesterday, the three of us had a trip to the Roman Wall in deepest Northumberland. We visited The Sill (the new visitor centre for lunch) and then went to Vindolanda - a Roman fort. Archaeological excavations of the site show it was under Roman occupation from roughly 85 AD to 370 AD.
My main picture is of a reconstruction of a Roman Temple at Vindolanda. There is really good museum there with loads of finds from excavations of the site. I have attached a few extra photos.
The weather was fabulous! Trust me that this is a rare occurrence in this part of the world. It is often a very bleak and cold place beside The Wall. It was lovely sitting in the warm sunshine outside of the cafe and catching up with all our son's news. A great day!
