An Exceptional Construction: The Building of Hadrian’s Wall - 12/11/2016, South Shields (England)

21.09.2016

 

Hadrian’s Wall has been classed amongst the ‘exceptional constructions’ of the Roman world — projects on a scale large enough to demonstrate to their contemporaries mastery of the natural world. Its building programme has always attracted interest, and we know more about the organisation of its construction and its work force than is the case with most of the other great buildings in the ancient world. Of course much remains to be learnt, and this year’s Arbeia Society Conference will present the results of recent research on the order in which the structures were built, some of the reasons for changes in the building programme, and the sources of stone.
