Delivered by Northumberland Libraries

As part of 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.

Lindsay Allason-Jones will be presenting an online talk and sharing her knowledge and expertise of the people who lived along Hadrian’s Wall.

Lindsay was Director of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Artefact Studies and Reader in Roman Material Culture at Newcastle University until she retired in 2011. She was previously Director of Archaeological Museums for the University and is now one of its Honorary Visiting Fellows. An acknowledged authority on artefacts, particularly those from Hadrian’s Wall, Roman Britain and Roman and Medieval Sudan, she is the author of thirteen books, including Women in Roman Britain and Daily Life in Roman Britain. She is currently President of the Royal Archaeological Institute.

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