'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.
The gallery features many rare and fascinating artefacts. A few of the most interesting objects were captured in fascinating 3D during the Hadrian's Cavalry exhibition. There is an opportunity for yourself to examine these in detail below.
