Known Unknowns

Thank you for your great questions on our “Known Unknowns” step on in this, the last week of our Hadrian’s Wall journey.  Dr Rob Collins chaired our panel which took place this afternoon at around 3.45-4.15pm, when he posed the questions you had asked to:

  • Lindsay Allason-Jones OBE, Visiting Fellow, Newcastle University
  • Mike Collins, Inspector of Ancient Monuments: Hadrian’s Wall, English Heritage
  • Professor Ian Haynes, Newcastle University
  • Frances McIntosh, Curator of Roman Collections, English Heritage

NB: Lindsay recommends a book during the video – it’s Murus ille famosus (That Famous Wall): Depictions and Descriptions of Hadrian’s Wall Before Camden by William D Shannon.
