Customer Review

on 24 August 2000
This book is a good mixture of a well-told history of Hadrian's Wall and a contemporary walk along remains of the Wall. The history sections are particularly good: unlike most writing about Roman history, this is accessible and lightly written so that really comes alive. These sections would stand well on their own, but they also merge well with the sections about the author's walk along the wall. These parts are entertaining and interesting, however, the fact that he did the walk in several sections splits up the narrative disconcertingly in places. The book was written thirty years ago, and some parts have dated badly. However, there is a useful (and up-to-date) appendix giving information on how and where to see the Wall today.
