Roman dagger, in the Vindolanda Museum, Hadrian's Wall, Northumberland, England. Daggers were standard Roman army equipment, although few have been found during excavation despite the survival of fragments of sheath. Hadrian's Wall was built 73 miles across Britannia, now England, 122-128 AD, under the reign of Emperor Hadrian, ruled 117-138, to mark the Northern extent of the Roman Empire and guard against barbarian attacks from the Picts to the North. The Vindolanda Museum is run by the Vindolanda Charitable Trust and forms part of the Hadrian's Wall UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
