Roman bridge reconstructed in Northumberland

A 2nd century Roman bridge, which originally crossed the Tyne River in Northumberland, has been reconstructed on the river's bank. The original was one of the largest bridges in Roman Britain.

Excavations of the bridge revealed the remains which once measured 50 ft. long and 10 ft. high. The elaborate structure would have been one of the main entries into the area of Hadrian's wall.
