The Notitia Dignitatum lists the garrisons on the wall from east to west, which seems also to be the case in the majority of modern works; RBO will not break with this tradition.
All places on this page are depicted on the Ordnance Survey Historical Map and Guide to Hadrian's Wall (Crown copyright 1986). The sites between the two horizontal bars in the following list are shown on the Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure map #43 Hadrian's Wall Haltwhistle & Hexham (Crown copyright 1997; revised 1998).
