The barrack block is the last of our three Roman reconstructed buildings and was built using traditional Roman techniques from the 3rd century.
Soldiers usually lived eight to an apartment and you can have a glimpse at their living quarters on entering the block.
Some of their weaponry is also displayed including shields, swords and body armour.
