Vindolanda Fort fresh water piping system discovered

Recommended Posts

An archaeologist in Northumberland has uncovered more of a Roman water system first found by his grandfather.

 

Dr Andrew Birley and a team of volunteers have been excavating land surrounding Vindolanda fort just south of Hadrian's Wall.

 

The project to discover and record the pipework at the fort near Hexham was started 82 years ago.

 

The team has identified the spring-head and piping system used thousands of years ago.

 

During an excavation in 1930, led by Prof Eric Birley, an area of the Vindolanda site became flooded and not suitable for further investigation
