Arbeia Roman Fort and Museum
Open: 10.00am-5pm Mon-Fri, 11am-4.15pm Sat, 2pm-5pm Sunday. Free. One of the few sites where you can actually watch excavations in progress throughout the summer months. There is a fine reconstruction (full size) of the fort's West Gate, and on some of the special event days you can sample Roman food or watch re-enactments of training.
