Andrew Tibbs brings together an overview of the history and archaeology of this famous monument, along with a guide to the key Roman sites to visit in and around Hadrian’s Wall. The history of the wall starts with the earliest Roman invasion of northern Britain. This led to the construction of the Stanegate, a chain of forts across northern England superseded by the construction of Hadrian’s Wall. Thirty key sites are examined, all of which can be visited, and Tibbs provides maps, illustrations and details of each of these. This is the perfect book for anybody interested in the history of the wall and the rich variety of interesting sites that can be found along it.
