Roman Frontier Gallery

'A British Museum Partnership Gallery The Roman Frontier: stories beyond Hadrian's Wall ' gallery is a permanent exhibition which showcases Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery’s significant Roman collections along with items on loan from the British Museum.

A broad range of interpretative techniques have been employed throughout the gallery including mixed-media displays and experience-based interactive exhibits aimed at local, national and international visitors.

The Living Wall area is a place where visitors can engage with ideas and stories, participate in dialogue with other visitors and the museum and develop an understanding from more contemporary examples about life on a frontier.

Outside the gallery is the public walkway linking Castle St and the Castle. Specially commissioned art features here are: a Steel Wall set with industrial artefacts (by Russell Coleman); a granite pavement inscribed with Border reiver family names and the 'Bishop's Stone', a 2.5 metre boulder inscribed with part of the Archbishop of Glasgow's stupendous curse upon the reivers (by Gordon Young).

Funded by The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA), Renaissance Northwest and Carlisle City Council.
