A Journey Along Hadrian's Wall
Originally stretching across the neck of England for over seventy miles, Hadrian's Wall is the most important Roman monument in Britain. Set in a wild, dramatic landscape, it is now a World Heritage Site, one of the wonders of the world, and stands as a reminder of the past glories of a mighty civilisation.
Hunter Davies grew up at one end of the wall and was inevitably drawn to walk its length. His charming personal account, part history, part guide-book and part personal experience, portrays the area and its inhabitants as they are today, and gives you a taste of what life was like in this remote part of Britain 2000 years ago.
