Delivered by Northumberland Libraries

As part of the their Photographing the Roman Wall: Then and Now project, Northumberland Libraries plan to offer a programme of events celebrating the life and work of the Hexham photographer and archaeologist, John Pattison Gibson.

In recognition of Gibson’s passion and enthusiasm for the Roman Wall and his own archaeological investigations, they are hosting a series of talks on Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman people.

In this online talk Rob Collins will tell us about the fate of Hadrian’s Wall after the Roman period in Britain ended.

Rob Collins is a Senior Lecturer in Archaeology at Newcastle University. His teaching and research focuses on Hadrian’s Wall and other Roman frontiers and artefacts and material culture. Most recently, he has been the project manager for the Lottery-funded Hadrian’s Wall Community Archaeology Project (WallCAP).

This project has been made possible thanks to a National Lottery Project Grant from Arts Council England.
