To mark the 1,900th anniversary of Hadrian’s Wall, English Heritage has installed a modern (and colourful) reimagination of the original Roman gatehouse at Housesteads Roman Fort.
The work – called The Future Belongs To What Was As Much As What Is – was created by the artist Morag Myerscough along with the local community.
It stands in the exact spot of the former north gatehouse and visitors can climb to the top in order to appreciate the same views Roman soldiers would have once seen.
The installation is part of the HW1900 Festival and will be open to the public until 30 October. The structure will then be removed, and the placards given to the community members who painted them.
