Serdunum

Attested:  RC Serduno

Where:  The Roman fort at Wallsend on Tyne at NZ30026602.

Name origin:  Latin sero ‘to join’, from PIE *ser- ‘to join’, would fit this position at the end of Hadrian's Wall.  Plus of course dunum ‘fort’.

Notes:  It is possible (as R&S suggested) that Serduno was corrupted from Segeduno, but there is also a case that the name Segedunum really belongs across the Tyne to the fort and supply base at South Shields.
