The Corbridge Hoard: A Roman Time Capsule

  • Description

    We've got an exciting new exhibition at Corbridge Roman Town on Hadrian's Wall, showing one of the most significant finds in Roman history - the Corbridge Hoard. Here you can watch this never before seen in public film footage of the excavation of the hoard back in 1964. The Corbridge Hoard is one the most remarkable Roman finds of the past century. The armour, found during the 1964 excavations, has since helped to shape Roman historians' understanding of Roman armour - definitely worth a visit to Hadrian's Wall! We've shared this great footage with the kind permission of Mrs A. Luscombe.
