Segedunum Roman Fort, Baths and Museum Part 1

Segedunum is at the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall and stands on the banks of the River Tyne. The wall was built by order of the Emperor Hadrian to defend the Roman Empire from the barbarians to the north. Segedunum was the last fort on this mighty frontier system which stretched across Britain from coast to coast.
Segedunum museum opened to the public in 2000 to tell the story of life on Hadrian's Wall and Wallsend during the last 2000 years.
In Part 1 we visit the observation tower and the displays within the museum. In Part 2 we take a look at the remains of the fort and the reconstructed wall, Roman garden and bath house.
