  ROMAN FRONTIERS IN BRITAIN
A.D. 105, a date which can be fairly certain as its rampart overlay burnt debris concealing a hoard of coins dating no later than 98 while a coin of 103 was found within the rampart make-up (Frere, p.123).
The garrison along the Stanegate was also supplemented by the establishment of new 'fortlets' and 'small forts' between the larger stations, at Newbrough, Haltwhistle Burn, Throp and Boothby.
In addition, beyond the known termini of the Stanegate there were further forts, at Burgh-by-Sands overlooking the Solway estuary and at Kirkbride on the River Wampool in the west (Breeze, chap.4).

Built during the governorship of Agricola in AD80, the Stanegate was an important trade route that needed protecting.
This wall was to extend beyond the limits of the Stanegate, to stretch across the entire island.
Such a road would be vital for the rapid transport of troops along the Wall and eventually replaced the Stanegate as the primary artery adorning the neck of Britain.

 Vindolanda Tablets Online | Exhibition | History of Vindolanda | Vindolanda and its northern context
Vindolanda itself lies on the 'Stanegate', built by Agricola or his successors, connecting Corbridge to Carlisle through the gap in the Pennine hills cut by the rivers Tyne and Irthing.
The Stanegate perhaps marked the limit of Roman control but may have been a patrolled road rather than a formal frontier line, allowing the movements of the Britons to be monitored.
The milestones set up along the Stanegate and other roads by third and fourth century emperors, presumably to record repairs, show the continuing importance to the army of these strategic routes.

 The Stanegate
After stabilizing the Province up to the Tyne-Solway-Line (the road along this line from Carlisle to Corbridge was probably built by Agricola and is known as the Stanegate, its medival name) Roman units entered Scotland and conquered the territory up to the Tay River.
The furthest North legionary fortress of Inchtuthil at the Upper Tay indicates further advance in order to subdue the whole island, but with the withdrawel of the legio II adiutrix to the Danube the retreat from Scotland started.
On the Stanegate there is a striking lack of watchtowers (prooved frontier systems like the Gask Ridge or the Raetien border provide a close spacing of watchtowers) For the five possible watchtowers (Pike Hill, Walltown Crags, Mains Rigg, Barcombe, Birdoswald) there is still no clear evidence.

 Hadrian's Wall-The Wall
Since the aim was to speed the movement of troops, the Stanegate road ran along the river valleys, avoiding the hills wherever possible, and was dominated by higher country to the north.
So it was decided to construct the permanent barrier a mile or so in that direction, taking advantage of the long ridge of folded volcanic rock known as the Whin Sill.
The chosen line involved a number of river crossings but Roman soldiers were experts at building bridges The Stanegate was still useful for moving troops and supplies therefore it was decided to use the existing forts as permanent bases for the troops who were to defend it.

He visited Britain in 122 and ordered a wall to be built to formalise the frontier, which had been temporarily established at the Tyne-Solway line.

Just beyond the city of Carlisle, we got off the main road (A69) and onto the path of the ancient Roman Stanegate, the military highway of its day (today's B6318), following what was the original turf-and-mud wall that preceded Hadrian's grand enterprise.
We walked up through fields of buttercups to rather steep crags (known as the Walltown Crags) looking north into the territory of the barbarians, and on for another 20 minutes or so until we saw a rather steely-eyed bull -- time to turn back.
We could have walked the entire 10 or so miles to Vindolanda, lying just south of the wall (on the original Stanegate), but I was eager to get there.

 Fortress - design, technology and history of key fortresses, strategic positions and defensive systems
Although the Stanegate, the Roman road connecting Corbridge with Carlisle, marked the northern limit of military occupation in Britain by the reign of Trajan, it was not a frontier system.
Hadrian himself came to the province in AD 122 and, according to his biographer, ‘he put many things to rights and was the first to build a wall, 80 miles long, to divide the Romans from the barbarians’ (SHA, Hadrian 11.2).
This road had been constructed during the governorship of Agricola to link Corbridge on Dere Street, the arterial route up the eastern side of the province from the legionary fortress at York, with Carlisle on the western route north from the legionary fortress at Chester.

 A Glimpse of Life at the Roman Fort Vindolanda
Early-morning sun lit the eastern sky, but glistening dew still whitened the prospect of meadowland and small fields of ripening wheat and barley that Messicus could see as he gazed to the north.
Old shoes, offcuts from leather hides, dead dogs, used bedding and floor matting, broken cooking pots and crockery, spoiled food and the knackered carcasses of cattle, pigs, sheep and goats all piled up in the ditch, there to putrefy.
Truly, mused Messicus, any traveler on the Stanegate Road would know that he was approaching the fort miles before it actually became visible.

In the uppermost reaches of Northern Britain, on the border with Scot­land between Luguvalium (Carlisle) and Coria (Corbridge), lay the fron­tier of the empire.
Although Agricola had led his victorious armies 200 miles further into Scotland proper in the mid-80s A.D., it was the road linking these two towns, the Stanegate, that formed the boundary between Roman Britain and the wild expanses to the north.
During this Agricolan period of conquests and the subsequent reversion to the Stane­gate frontier, many timber forts were constructed along the Stanegate (Birley, 1977: 12).
