Hadrian’s Wall - A Cultural History

2017 is the 1900th anniversary of the accession of Emperor Hadrian the man behind the wall which stretches from Newcastle to the Solway Firth. Tom visited the wall to discuss its place in our cultural history. He was joined by the author of Hadrian’s Wall: A Life, Professor Richard Hingley; the Poet Katrina Porteus and the Lecturer in Regional History at the University of Lancashire, Dr Christopher Donaldson

Katrina Porteus reads extracts from her poem `This Far and No Further' which draws upon the voices and sounds of those living in the wall's shadow. More information available from Bloodaxe Books
