Hadrian’s Wall Trip


A group of intrepid S3 Classicists accompanied Mr Morton and Dr Cochrane to the edge of the Roman Empire to visit Hadrian’s Wall and the surrounding area.

A fantastic time was had by all, even when trying to work out how many stones were needed for the 73 mile long structure.

In addition to mathematical investigations, our S3s tried out their archaeological problem solving, deciding how many Roman soldiers could sleep in a barracks, how we can tell where Poltross Burn fort’s kitchen had been, and just why the latrines at Housesteads had water channels running around the room in front of the benches.

Sites visited included Banks Turret, Willowford, Poltross Burn, the Roman Army Museum, Housesteads and Vindolanda.
