Image details:

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.
