    One thought on “Hadrian's Wall”

    1. The beautiful photos in this book instantly transported me back to a special visit I took to Hadrian's Wall Country a few summers ago. Brabbs has an amazing talent for capturing the quintessential "money shots" while making you feel as if you're the only one in the world getting to enjoy these stunning panoramas. As if the photos and large coffee table format of this book weren't enough, the author has also managed to pack in an easily understandable history of this beautiful World Heritage Site [...]

    2. Excellent coverage of the wall in both words and pictures, including artifacts discovered, the history of different sections of the wall, and the National Trail path, as well as tips for driving to specific areas or where to walk to see items not on the path. Lots of full color photos and very easy to read. It is a little dated now, being almost 10 years old. But I highly recommend this book for anyone contemplating visiting the wall or walking the path.
