Book Description:

Hadrian’s Wall follows the line of the Wall from the Solway Firth in the west across some of England’s finest countryside to Newcastle upon Tyne in the east. It extends for some 120 kilometres across the Tyne-Solway isthmus and was built on the orders of Emperor Hadrian from AD122 to be a permanent, fixed frontier to mark the northernmost boundary of the Roman Empire. Despite being fragmentary in places and virtually non-existent at its eastern and western ends, the central sector snakes impressively over the rocky escarpments and undulations of Northumberland’s Whin Sill ridge.
