Despite damage inflicted by stone-robbers, the walls of Vindolanda
still survive to an impressive height, in places to several metres.
The masonry facing encloses a mortared rubble core. This east gate
and the south gate were small and lacked guard chambers, perhaps
serving as pedestrian gates only. A flight of stone steps led away
from the east gate, rather than a road.
