Stretching for 73 miles from the Tyne to the Solway, Hadrian’s Wall is the most impressive reminder of Britain’s Roman past. It was a massive undertaking, requiring huge investment in time and manpower at the very edge of the empire. But why was it built and how was it constructed? Written by Nick Hodgson, historian and leading archaeologist, this fabulous book about the Emperor Hadrian’s most famous construction explores the motivations behind this enormous barrier and the reason why it was manned for three hundred years. This book is packed with the sort of detail that will satisfy the most discerning Wall buff.
