the sites on Hadrian's Wall were heavily guarded
fortresses. Corbridge was once a bustling town and supply base where Romans and
civilians would pick up food and provisions. It remained a vibrant community right up until the end of Roman Britain in the early
years of the 5th century.
Today, you can still walk through the town's streets and experience a time-capsule of Roman life. You can also discover Roman
armour and trinkets uncovered with the Corbridge Hoard at the museum.
