Hadrian's Wall Guidebook, David Breeze
Stretching for 73 miles across northern England, Hadrian's Wall is the most important monument of Roman Britain, and the best-known frontier of the entire Roman empire. It was built on the orders of the emperor Hadrian after he visited Britain in AD122 and it took ten years to complete.
This guidebook includes -
- Maps, plans and tours of the important sites
- A history of the Wall and its associated forts
- Illustrations throughout with colour reconstructions and photographs.
The monument called Hadrian's Wall consits not only of the visible remains of the Wall itself, but also of its associated forts, milecastles, turrets and earthworks. The entire site forms the most powerful evocation of life on the outermost limits of the Roman empire. Tours include:
- Maryport and the Solway Coast, Birdoswald, Gilsland, Vindolanda
- Steel Rigg, Housesteads, Sewingshields, Carrawburgh, , Chesters, Corbridge
- Heddon-on-the-Wall, Newcastle, Wallsend, South Shields
