What an excellent place to get a real sense of the scale and complexity of the Roman occupation. A real sense of the bleakness and silence surrounding the area. The excavations are extensive. The information is very clear and accessible. The museum is well organised and tells the story very well. The 'writing tablets' deserve the title of the best treasure in Britain - an amazing find.
Spent a few pounds in the shop but didn't make use of the tea room - it was a bit early on !
Great place to wander round and take in the history. Lots of very well informed staff on hand to help our too.
Got a combined ticket for the Roman Army Museum 7 miles down the road ....
