The Roman Army Museum
Three miles north-west of Haltwhistle

The Roman Army Museum is housed in the 18th century farmhouse and associated buildings at Carvoran, a small settlement adjacent to the still buried Roman fort of Magna. It is an excellent place to find out all about the Roman Army. Learn about the different sub-divisions of a legion, the military ranks, soldiers' duties, their armour and weapons. More a museum of living reconstructions than excavated artefacts, there are excellent tableaux showing Roman arms and armour in great detail, along with explanatory videos and a model the nearby fort.

The museum is run by the Vindolanda Trust & there is an entry fee. Joint tickets available with Vindolanda.
