Hadrian’s Wall once marked the northern edge of the Roman Empire, and was built to intimidate the uncouth tribes of hostile local natives. Now a UNESCO world heritage site, Hadrian’s Wall is the largest and most important Roman site in Britain. Use this book to explore Hadrian’s Wall Country, from Tynemouth to the Solway Firth.
You’ll discover how the Romans took a bath – and where they went to spend a penny; why aliens came to stay in a small rural town; where King Arthur lies sleeping until his country needs him; and whether Robin Hood really did take a wrong turn on his journey from Dover to Sherwood Forest.
Living just twenty minutes’ drive from Hadrian’s Wall, this was a fun book to write. What I hadn’t expected was discovering many new places previously unknown (at least to me). I hope you enjoy reading about (and hopefully visiting) the places in the book as much as I enjoyed writing about them.
