Reconstructing Hadrian's Wall (and other Roman forts)

We will consider the evidence for reconstructions and look at three reconstructed buildings at South Shields. Speakers will include Dr Christof Fluegel, head of the Bavarian Museums Service, Peter Hill, formerly Clerk of Works at Lincoln Cathedral, Professor David Breeze and Professor Valerie Maxfield.
