Sobre o livro
Design. Construction. Everyday Life. Hadrian's Wall is the largest, most spectacular historical monument in Britain. Nothing else approaches its vast scale: a land wall running 73 miles from east to west and a sea wall stretching at lease 26 miles down the Cumbrian coast. This book traces the concept, construction and purpose of the wall, how it was built, who worked on it and the lives lived on and around it, from Roman auxiliaries to civilian staff.
