Temple of Mithras Brocolitia area, Hadrian's Wall

  • Description

    Mithraic temple along Hadrian's wall route, near the Carrawburgh / Brocolitia fort site.

Part of the Brocolitia site overall, roman fort site and other areas is further to the south west and south east. 1949 excavation, original shires have been moved to the Museum of Antiquities, university of newcastle. http://www.roblog.com/flickrfly.php?range=60&heading=300&tilt=75.0" >Coming from the south to view angle...
