[a] lively and richly comprehensive account of the way the Wall has been perceived Christopher Catling, Times Literary Supplement This is a rich and fascinating book, essential as much to students of the Wall as to those interested in the history of our enquiry into the past. Professor Michael Fulford, Archaeological Journal This contribution will be valuable to anybody interested in artefact biography, local history, Scottish-English relation and heritage interpretation. Anna Walas, Medieval Settlement Research This is a magisterial volume ... and the author is to be congratulated on his achievement. Professor Roger Ling, Antiquaries Journal Hingley has been remarkably successful in transforming years of exhaustive research into a pleasurable and informative book that can appeal to a wide ranging audience. Sara Sieteski, Bryn Mawr Classical Review Hingley has written the historiographical account of Hadrian's Wall for this generation and, I suspect, beyond: it is one of the most important books ever to have been written on Hadrian's Wall. Professor David Breeze, Britannia Hingley's message is a welcome and timely one for a field threatened by intellectual ossification, where the distancing mechanisms of objectivity and classical tradition are shown to be the crutches of unreflective privilege and empire. They are the crutches of a dying scholarship. Hingley's book is nothing short of a will to relevance for Roman archaeology, for its living spirit to be resurrected in research that animates past with present. This is a book with a story, a playful joining of analytical and narrative forms that should be emulated. It is a book to be read tucked up in bed after a day of trekking along the Wall, or in preparation or remembrance of a visit. Professor Katheryn Lafrez Samuels, Antiquity This is the culmination of a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and all interested in Roman Britain and the Roman frontier should be grateful to that body for helping create this thoughtful, challenging and well-written book. Professor David Breeze, British Archaeology
