    Stuffed with information on all aspects of the Wall Published in 1984 this book contains much that is still valid including drawings diagrams etc Archaeologists have discovered finds since though eg the Vindolanda Tablets only one photo of one of the Tablets no explanation that I can see The 400 breath taking full color illustrations are unusual and absolutely spectacular These are the high point of the book; the thumbnail used by GR gives a small example I did not read straight through but paged where my interest took me

    This is a really impressive accomplishment Embleton and Graham give a detailed survey of the entire sweep of Hadrian's Wall from East to West They briefly relate the wall's construction and its history but they also look at the various troops who lived there their military organization and how it changed over time their fortifications camps and roads their living conditions economy family social and religious arrangements All of this is painstakingly reconstructed from historical documentary literary and archaeological sources and lavishly illustrated throughout In a number of cases they make effective use of 18th and 19th century descriptions of portions of the wall that have since disappeared I especially appreciate how many inscriptions and artifacts they reproduce in excellent illustrations instead of just describing them The many site maps of of the milecastles forts fortlets turrets etc are also helpfulIt's not a book for everyone but if you have particular interest in Roman Britain it's a gem I would also recommend it to folks with an interest in learning about archaeology since the authors show their work and make a clear distinction between what can be known for sure from the available evidence and what is guesswork With all of the examples they show the book also serves no doubt unintentionally as a handy brief introduction to Roman epigraphy

    A tremendous companion to any visitor to the Wall As well as detailed descriptions of each section there are many imaginative illustrations of how it was used and the lives of the soldiers stationed there My edition was published in 1984 so many of the latest discoveries such as those at Vindolanda are not included but nevertheless the book makes a great introduction for the interested reader
