Staward Peel Tower (Live Blog)

Morgan, Sarah, Andy, Anthea and I took the last hike of the field school season today (unless it rains this week). We went up Allen Banks to see Staward Peele, a 13th century pele tower (note the difference in spelling). We suspect there was a Roman signal station and maybe a temple here as well. The view is fantastic. You can even see Housesteads Roman Fort and Sycamore gap in the background of this photo.
