The remains of the Temple of Antenociticus are located in Benwell, a residential area a few miles west of the centre of Newcastle. It was a small temple to the native god Antenociticus, in the civilian settlement (vicus), which stood outside Benwell fort (Condercum), one of 16 forts along the 73-mile-long (117 km) Hadrian's Wall.
