About Binchester Roman Fort

For over 300 years, Binchester Roman Fort was occupied for. To begin with, soldiers in this fort did not come from this area; they came from all over the Roman Empire. We know that a cavalry unit from Spain was here in the 2nd century AD and that a unit originally made up of Dutch tribesmen was here in the 3rd century AD.

Binchester Fort was built in the second half of the first century AD, when the Roman army was asserting its power in the north east of England. Originally, the fort was built in wood: when the Romans knew they would be in the area for a long time, it was rebuilt in stone.
