TURRET 33B

DESCRIPTION + /

The site of Roman turret 33B, part of the defences on Hadrian's Wall. It has been exposed and consolidated. The walls are 0.9 metres thick and have a maximum height of 1.1 metres. There is a blocked entry at the east end of the south wall. The turret apparently went out of use at the end of the 2nd century, when the pottery sequence comes to an end, and the doorway was blocked. It was subsequently demolished and the recess in the rear of the wall was blocked up.
