: Hadrian's Wall: A life
This paper, which arises from the 'Tales of the Frontier' project, assesses the after-life of the Wall from the fifth century to the internet. It explores the idea of the Wall as a living landscape that is constantly remade in conceptual and physical terms. In particular, it addresses the development of popular and scholarly knowledge and how the 'archaeological imagination' can help to transform inherited ideas about the monumentality of the Wall. It forms part of a series of talks and events in Durham, co-ordinated through the Institute for Advanced Studies, under the 'Life of the Frontier' theme.
