Hadrian's Wall - Live Walk. Searching for an Ancient Roman Wood Fired Oven.

Hadrian's Wall - Live Walk. Searching for an Ancient Roman Wood Fired Oven.

Join me for a live walk along the ancient Hadrian's Wall in the United Kingdom, as I go searching for a 2000 year old ancient wood fired oven inside Housesteads Roman Fort. Take a listen to the gorgeous ambience of the UK countryside and get a sense of what life was like for young roman soldiers, eating freshly baked bread from these ovens on the very edge of the north west frontier of the Roman Empire.

A special thanks to English Heritage for giving me permission to bring my recording equipment and record this episode  inside Housesteads Roman fort.

English Heritage is an incredibly important charity. They protect an internationally-important collection of historic sites and artefacts which span six millennia, from the ancient past to the present day and include palaces, houses, hill figures, castles, abbeys, industrial sites, Roman forts and even deserted medieval villages.

Caring for these places and their collections for the benefit of this and future generations is a cornerstone of everything they do. 

If you re able, please consider making a donation to English Heritage to help preserve these wonderful sites.
