Housesteads
Northumberland, England, 2006

The Roman fort of Housesteads on Hadrian's Wall, is in the care of English Heritage, who proudly boast that they look after the 'finest preserved Roman latrines in the country.' Only the stonework survives, but an artist's impression of the latrines in everyday use has been thoughtfully provided for those of limited imagination. Many aspects of Roman military life are represented at Housesteads, but this latrine block is particularly popular with visiting school parties.
