Tyne and Wear HER(827): Wallsend Fort, parade ground - Details
Wallsend Fort, parade ground
Military Training Site
Phillips suggests that "the statue of Minerva (HER no. 828) possibly stood on the parade ground of the fort, since it was found with an official dedication to Jupiter Optimus Maximus"(HER no. 819) and "an image of a martial goddess would be appropriate in such a context". Both objects were recovered from the Philiphaugh allotments.
