It started with a few photographs taken near Housesteads, and grew from there. Within the gallery pages you will find a small selection of pictures which I hope give a flavour of this area and its surrounding landscape. However, the pages contained within the Story of the Wall offer something a little different. Alongside the photographs you will find a short narrative, illustrations and a few quotes from historians about the building of Hadrian’s Wall. It’s very much a work in progress, but I hope my photographs help give some context to the things that you might see when visiting the area. It appears that even amongst professional historians and archaeologists there is a great deal of controversy and speculation over the history of Hadrian’s Wall. So, if you do find a mistake or think the site could be improved, please let me know by emailing me.
