Arbeia Roman Fort.

Interpretation Panels Design, Manufacture and Installation.

Arbeia Roman Fort and Museum is part of the Hadrian’s Wall/Frontiers of the Roman Empire World Heritage Site. It is one of the most extensively excavated and reconstructed archaeological sites in Britain, but is difficult to find, located as it is in a residential area of South Shields.

The Brief.

Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums has undertaken a substantial programme of developments at Arbeia, funded by the DCMS Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund. r//evolution has a strong portfolio in destination marketing and as such has been closely involved throughout the project – creating the WallQuest brand and a range of collateral from a responsive website to discovery and other literature. Towards the end of the project, r//evolution was commissioned to create an engaging suite of interpretation signage for the Arbeia site.  

The Solution.

Designs for the interpretation panels were created using existing and new graphics, with clear text, helping the reader to interpret the site swiftly and easily. The panels, featuring areas of the site from the granary to the barrack blocks and latrines are fully in-keeping with the WallQuest brand, and feature funders logos.  

Working with a specialist signmaker and installer, r//evolution provided a robust, quality exterior graphic and signage system providing high quality image and text reproduction on a vandal resistant cleanable glass reinforced plastic (GRP) panel with a 10 year guarantee. The panels are solid, one piece and frameless, delivering unrivalled durability and elegance. 

The interpretation panels were installed within the tight project timeframe and available budget.  

Interpretation panels project completed on time and budget with high quality look.
