Hadrian's WallBook - 2012
Hadrian's Wall is a Roman fortification which has stood along the northern frontier of Roman Britain since AD 122 and stretches 73 miles from the Solway Firth to the North Sea through stunning upland countryside, beautiful farmland and the vibrant cities of Carlisle and Newcastle. Hadrian's Wall was more than just a wall; it was a whole military zone, designed to control movement across the frontier of Roman Britain. Over 10,000 people walk Hadrian's Wall Path end to end every year but many of them miss much of the archaeological remains along Britain's longest and greatest historic monument. In addition to the well known forts like Chesters, Housesteads and Birdoswald, and Corbridge Roman Town, this unique walking guide shows the great earthworks and barriers that survive, along with the remains of roads, bridges, temporary camps, watchtowers, fortified gates, civilian settlements, bathhouses, temples and cemeteries.
