Stretching from the Solway Firth to the estuary of the River Tyne, Hadrian's Wall runs for 74 miles through some of the most scenic landscape in Britain. It disregards hills and valleys, at times choosing what seems to be the most difficult route. It is a spectacular monument to the ambition and skill of the Romans, who built the wall almost 2,000 years ago to mark and protect the northernmost boundary of their Empire. Ed Geldard's beautifully illustrated account describes Hadrian the man and the construction of the all, and takes the reader on a tour of the wall from east to west, concluding with an examination of the soldiers' way of life.

Ed Geldard is a professional landscape photographer who, after a short spell in the Lake District, returned to his native northeast. A former freelance of the Northern Echo group, he is a keen walker and contributes to many countryside publications. In 1991 he teamed up with the legendary Alfred Wainwright, who said "so good is his work that I have been well content to let my narrative play second fiddle to his excellent photographs." Sunday Times called Ed's photographs "stunningly magnificent." Together Ed and Alfred Wainwright produced Wainwright in the Limestone Dales.
