5656019English Heritage: Temple Of Mithras
DateThursday 1st January 2015 to Tuesday 31st December 2019
DescriptionA fascinating temple to the eastern god Mithras stands near Carrawburgh fort, with facsimiles of altars found during excavation. Sited like many Mithraic temples near a military base, it was founded in the 3rd century and eventually desecrated, probably by Christians. Nearby, but no longer visible, was the shrine of the water mymph Coventina.
