** This electronic edition includes 22 black-and-white drawings and 34 colour illustrations ** 


Walk the Wall, gaze northwards across hostile territory, man the turrets and milecastles...What was life like for the Roman troops stationed on Hadrian's Wall? Follow the life of one man, a Tungrian soldier, through recruitment, training, garrison duty and war. Focussing on a single point in time and one fort on the Wall, we explore every aspect of military life on this bleak and remote frontier. Where was he born? What did he spend his money on? How did he fight? What did he eat? Did he have lice or fleas? Archaeology and the accounts of ancient writers come together to paint a vivid picture of a soldier on the Wall soon after its completion in AD 130. Historical reconstruction and experimentation fill in the gaps that are left. Step back into the past, step into the marching boots of Tungrian soldiers as they patrol Rome's greatest frontier.
