Housesteads Roman Wall Museum

Project description.

Experience the military way, a road where the Roman soldiers once continuously marched. This route is guarded by rattling corten shields acting as a safe passage for the visitor along to the Housesteads fort. Visitors are offered the opportunity to explore findings in the buildings along the route; moving out of safe territory on the military way; interacting with Hadrian’s’wall.
Each structure relives the experiences of Roman life using variable sensory conditions to connect the visitor to the emotions shared to that of the soldier; from the sodden dirt on the ground to a sunset and the stars in the night sky. Visitors will feel the experiences a Roman soldier would have felt; from loneliness to hunger, the noise and feeling of the wind across the landscape; the smell of dew on the grass and the crunch of leaves under foot in the autumn.
