Arbeia Roman Fort, South Shields

Arbeia Roman Fort, South Shields

This is how “luxurious” a lifestyle we envisaged the Commandant of the Roman Fort, Arbeia in South Shields to have enjoyed. Inside the reconstructed headquarters building and barrack block a number of rooms have been created to reflect the finds and artefacts unearthed during the years of excavations. Archeologists from Tyne Wear Museums now have a fairly good idea of how the insides and outsides of the Roman buildings inside the fort looked, and the reconstruction is a big pull for tourists.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/180 second, f3.5, iso, 200
