I purchased Hadrian's Wall AD 122-410 by Nic Fields as research for a project I am working on. It is a great introduction to Hadrian's Wall to Roman fortifications and the origins of Hadrian's Wall. The illustrations by Donato Spedalier help visualize what it was like to live in the Roman army in Rome's most northern frontier. This is an excellent book for those who want an overview of Hadrian's Wall or for those planning to trek the Hadrian's Wall Path. For those interested, there is listing of books for further reading and research.
I loved this book. It really helped me understand more about the wall and about Hadrian. Also I learned about how it was built.
