Hadrian's Cavalry - Saturday 8th April, 2017

Taking place from Saturday 8 April to Sunday 10 September 2017, Hadrian’s Cavalry explores the role and daily life of the Roman army’s cavalry forces in a unique wall-wide exhibition that stretches the full 150 miles of the Hadrian’s Wall World Heritage Site area – from Maryport in the west to South Shields in the east. Arbeia Roman Fort Uncovering cavalry – what archaeology tells us about Roman cavalry New evidence about the equipment and daily lives of the cavalry stationed along Hadrian’s Wall is constantly being uncovered by archaeological excavations, including those at Arbeia. The exhibition consists of objects found in the barracks where the soldiers lived, and includes two outstanding items from elsewhere in the Empire that match finds from the fort itself. Hadrian’s Cavalry is funded primarily through Arts Council England’s Museum Resilience Fund and managed by a partnership of heritage organisations from across Hadrian’s Wall.
