A Roman Fort in Alston is said to be possibly the best preserved example of Roman architecture in Europe. That is probably because it's been untouched since the Romans left.
Whitley Castle also known as Epiacum is a fort some way from Hadrian's Wall halfway down the South Tyne Valley.
The ancient monument lies on private farmland near Alston and until recently was visited only by sheep.
But now thanks to Heritage Lottery funding there are plans to uncover the site and maybe even set up a visitor centre.
