Hadrian's Wall on Tyneside: An Introduction and Guide to the Latest Discoveries

This book gives an introduction to Hadrian’s Wall and its legacy on Tyneside, explaining what we know about Hadrian’s Wall in these less-visited areas. It also describes discoveries made by WallQuest, a community archaeology project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and others, and managed by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums.

WallQuest aimed to improve the understanding and interpretation of Hadrian’s Wall on Tyneside, and to give local people, who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity, a chance to get involved in real archaeological work to find out more about the Wall. Between 2012 and 2016, 550 individual volunteers from the local community have taken part and investigated a number of different sites, not just in Tyneside but throughout the eastern 30 miles of Hadrian’s Wall.
