This is a unique and visual companion to the best-known and most spectacular monument to the Roman Empire in Britain. A fascinating look at Hadrian's Wall uses James Irwin Coates 'old views' of the Wall as a comparison to how it looks today. Alan Michael Whitworth also uses several pieces of Roman sculpture from Chesters Fort Museum to help tell the story of the Wall.Lavishly illustrated in full colour, this new visual exploration of the Wall will be essential reading not only for tourists, but for anyone with an interest in local history. Born in New Zealand, Alan Michael Whitworth spent 15 years as the Hadrian's Wall Recording Archaeologist for English Heritage producing a detailed drawn record of all of the visible remains of the World Heritage Monument.
