Binchester Roman Fort in County Durham has a rich and exciting history involving Roman soldiers, pagan Angles, and early Christian faith. Only a small proportion of the site has been excavated, and while much is known there is still a great deal to learn. The comparatively new technology of geophysical survey has shown in recent years just how much has yet to be investigated at this extremely important site.
The story of Binchester fort begins around 75 AD, over 1900 years ago. This booklet provides an introduction to the site and a visitor guide to an amazingly well-preserved site in parts where you can 'walk in the footsteps' of Roman legionary and auxiliary soldiers.
