Hadrian’s Wall

Year 3 pupils from Barbondale joined Wensleydale for a trip to Hadrian’s Wall. We visited Housesteads Fort before lunch. It was amazing to be so close to Hadrian’s Wall. We imagined what it would have been like to be a Roman soldier walking the wall, in winter, looking out for the fearsome Celts. Off to Vindolanda after lunch to see archaeologists at work and hold artefacts that had not seen the light of day for nearly 2000 years.
