EDITORS COMMENTS
This aerial photograph, captured by Emma Trevarthen, showcases the timeless beauty of Housesteads or Vircovicium Roman Fort on Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. The fort stands proudly amidst a winter wonderland, its ancient ruins blanketed in a pristine layer of snow. The image transports us back to an era long gone but not forgotten - a time when this imposing structure served as a vital frontier defense for the Roman Empire. The remnants of earthworks and crumbling walls tell stories of battles fought and lives lived within these historic grounds. As we gaze upon this scene, we are reminded of the resilience and ingenuity displayed by those who once called Housesteads their home. Despite being battered by centuries of harsh weather conditions, the fort still stands tall against the elements. The contrast between the pure white snow and the rugged stone structures creates a visually striking composition that evokes both awe and reverence. It is as if nature itself has chosen to honor this remarkable piece of history with its delicate touch. Emma Trevarthen's skillful capture allows us to appreciate not only the architectural marvels left behind by our ancestors but also their ability to adapt and thrive in even the harshest environments. This photograph serves as a poignant reminder that our past is alive within these ruins, waiting patiently for us to uncover its secrets and learn from its lessons.
