Delivered by Museos Arqueológicos del Ayuntamiento de Gijón
This year marks the 1,900th anniversary of the start of the construction of Hadrian’s Wall in the North of England. The Archaeological Museums of Gijón / Xixón join in the celebrations of this commemoration, since its relationship with the city of Gijón through the military settlement known as Cilurnum seems proven.
This exhibition, which is the result of collaboration beetween different organizations like the Oiasso Museum and the Vindolanda Charitable Trust, aims to discover and promote elements and objects found in the surroundings of the Hadrian’s Wall sites and the Vindolanda border camp. It is formed by a selection of photographs of the Wall, of the excavations, archeological finds made in the Vindolanda fort in 2017 and of the replicas of some belongings. Documents and objects that are true gems and that speak of the daily life of the troops that formed the Roman army.
