Two smaller items that can be found are the Roman Temple of Antenociticus and Vallum crossing at Benwell, all other remains in this area are covered by later developments.
The Fort at Benwall known as Condercum was a cavalry fort built just after 122AD.

The God Antenociticus and Anociticus. The same god, known as Antocidicus and invoked here and at Chesters Roman Fort is thought to have been a warrior or smith deity, although some, from its hair style suggest a connection with either Greek hero gods, tie up with a Celtic deer god. While most religions were practiced by the common soldiers, this one appears to have had support from senior officers of auxiliary units and from legions stationed in Britain.
