Located in an isolated setting Housesteads Roman Fort is one of 15 built on Hadrian's Wall around AD 124, but by 409AD the Romans had withdrawn. The archaeological remains of all the main buildings have been little disturbed and there is also evidence of a substantial civil settlement outside the fort. Some of the stone foundations and a series of large stone-lined water storage tanks can still be seen. It also has one of the best-preserved stone latrines in Roman Britain. Housesteads continues to be one of the most intensively studied forts on Hadrian's Wall.
