Guardhouse

A typical story-and-a-half brick building, the Guardhouse contained a small, brick-paved room for the shelter and convenience of the sentries – much as the reconstructed exhibit does today. The original building and the wall were pulled down in the 19th century, but both have been rebuilt with the aid of archaeology, watercolor sketches, and a wood engraving.
