Mystical Mithras

An important Roman site  was discovered not far from Housesteads on the Roman Wall in Northumberland in 1949.
Next to the remains of the fort of Brocolitia lies the remains of a Mithraic Temple.
Here archeologists found altars and timbers preserved in the local waterlogged conditions.
Mithras (a Greek name for a Persian god Mithra), was worshipped in a mystery religion practised in the Roman Empire from the 1st to the 4th centuries AD.

The way the pipes is constructed gives it a staccato sounding style and the music is also quieter than (say) the Highland bagpipes that most people are familiar with.
