Aldborough Roman Site
Aldborough, among the northernmost urban centres in the Roman Empire, succeeded Stanwick as the tribal stronghold of the Romanised Brigantes, the largest tribe in Britain. One corner of the defences is clearly laid out amid the towering trees of a Victorian arboretum, a tranquil place for picnics. Two almost complete mosaic pavements can be viewed in their original position, and the site museum's fine collection of Roman finds make this the best place in Yorkshire to study the Romans. There is a handling collection of real and replica Roman objects, mosaic-making kits, and a 'tree box' for the arboretum.
Dogs on leads are welcome at Battle Abbey. Please note that restrictions may apply to certain areas of the site.
