Keener Classics on Hadrian’s Wall: June 2015

Image result for hadrian's wall map

This June I am going to visit Hadrian’s Wall. I will be tweeting my way along the Wall. The plan is to walk all the way along the wall, from SEGEDUNUM (Wallsend) to MAIA (Bowness-on-Solway). I have two weeks. I would very much appreciate advice and ideas from those who know the area well! At the end, I’m planning to visit some other significant parts of the Roman Empire in the North of England – advice on this too please!
