Bishop is one of the foremost authorities on the wall in particular and the Roman military in general, and his knowledge shows through the guide. Having walked the wall more times than I have had hot dinners, Bishop knows every hummock, ditch and hedge along the way. These two factors combine to make him the perfect guide for the journey, but add to the text an anecdotal manner and a number of interesting and humourous tidbits and you're left with a guide that's a HUGE win.
In fact, for the historically-inclined, it's such a good choice, you can 'armchair archaeology your way along the wall using your kindle and Google Earth.
Brilliant. More than worth the small price. Buy it. Enjoy it. Review it and help spread the word.
I would recommend this book to anyone who, like me, knows a little about Hadrian's Wall but when walking needs to be not too overloaded with facts, just enough to add to previous knowledge and undersatnding.

fairly clear and comprehensive guide to walking the wall. A few bits are a little opinionated but overall a worthwhile read.Published on 7 April 2015 by Footie Flint
