Get building!

When soldiers finished building a section of Hadrian’s Wall, they often marked a stone with the name of the centurion in charge of their group. Try building arches and make your own mini-centurial stone to take away with you.

This activity is part of the Hadrian's Wall 1900 Festival, a year-long event celebrating 1900 years since the building of the Wall.
