An interactive model of the Wall enables visitors to discover the detailed history of this amazing fortification as well as finding out about all the forts, milecastles and associated museums that can be visited today.

The gallery includes a wealth of archaeological finds and visitors can hear stories of life on the Wall from the people who actually lived at the time.

Also on display is the gold Aemelia Ring, believed to be one of the earliest Christian artefacts found in Britain.
