Aldborough Roman Site

For an interesting day out visit Aldborough Roman site.

Among the northernmost urban centres in the Roman Empire, Aldborough was the 'capital' of the Romanised Brigantes, the largest tribe in Britain. One corner of the defences is laid out amid a Victorian arboretum, and two mosaic pavements can be viewed in their original positions.

The site museum has an outstanding collection of Roman finds, a handling collection of Roman objects, and other 'hands-on' aids for children and families.
