First trip to Segedunum to see the site, meet the Tyne and Wear museum staff and ‘the Elephants’ one of the Year 4 classes at Denbigh Primary School. We explored the museum and the Fort. Particular highlights were exploring the reconstructed piece of Hadrian’s Wall and seeing the Wall of Names (photo) collected from the centurio stones along the Wall. Real Voices who gave blood, sweat and tears to the Wall. Our artwork is to be sited in the Shrine of the Standards on the ground floor of the Museum. (photo)
The view from the viewing gallery of the Fort and the surrounding area is amazing. (photo) I find it incredible how the site was pretty much covered by housing and industry not that long ago. Thank goodness that someone was clearsighted enough to protect it for future generations.
