Auxiliary cavalry were recruited for their skills on horseback. Fast and mobile, they were perfect for patrolling the lands around Hadrian’s Wall. A cavalry unit from Spain, for example, was stationed at Chesters Fort.

Built on the orders of Emperor Hadrian, the 73 miles long wall running coast to coast purposed as the last division between the Roman Empire and the wild beyond. In the new audio series 'Discover the Wall' presenter Maddie Moate learns about Roman life along Hadrian's Wall.
