There is tantalising evidence of a Hadrianic period fort in South Shields that predates the Antonine fort of Arbeia. This small exhibition will explore what we know and don’t know about this ‘lost’ fort that controlled sea and river access to the Roman frontier. Part of Hadrian’s Wall 1900 festival, celebrating 1900 years since the building of Hadrian’s Wall.
