At the end of week one of Hadrian’s Wall: Life on the Roman Frontier we have been asking “Why was the Wall built?”
If you would like to find some of the diverse views on this topic you can watch this extra discussion that Professor Ian Haynes held with world experts on Hadrian’s Wall.
In this 13 minute film, recorded in 2014, you will see Ian talking with:
- Professor David Breeze (Visiting Professor, Newcastle University),
- Dr Sue Stallibrass (Historic England, Regional Science Advisor, NW England
- Dr Nick Hodgson (Principal Keeper of Archaeology: Strategic Project Management, Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums)
Have their ideas changed your own thoughts at all?
