Hadrian’s Wall showcases the astonishing transformational power of the Roman Empire. The latest archaeological work is revealing how the decision to split Britain in two with a frontier changed life in the region forever. While some communities were broken apart, so too new ones were forged by individuals drawn from across the Roman world. Outcomes ranged from resistance to flourishing multicultural communities, creating numerous legacies. This course will examine the Wall alongside Rome’s other frontiers, and also ask what lessons this ancient system holds for the modern era, when border barriers are proliferating once more.
