"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867

I would try this. I haven't read it but David, who I know, is probably the world expert on the Antonine Wall. There is more about it on Amazon.

Thanks for your recommendations.... I think I'm going with Robertson & Keppie to start...
