The lives of Roman Legionnaires were re-enacted during the Hadrian’s Wall Live event at Birdoswald and Housesteads Roman forts over the weekend. The event which was organised by English Heritage brought together over 120 re-enactors from around Europe to create a living history camp for visitors to the ancient Roman forts on Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland and Cumbria. During the weekend the sights, sounds and smells of Roman and Barbarian life from around 124 AD were recreated with battle tactics, patrolling, camp life, cooking skills and equipment demonstrated. Hadrian’s Wall stretches 73 miles from sea to sea across the north of England and is a World heritage site.
