This short but incisive pamphlet sets out to debunk the view that medieval knowledge of Hadrian's wall was at best patchy, showing that it was seen as an exceptional and noteworthy feature of the landscape not just by northern writers, but nationally. William Shannon first looks at references to the wall in chroniclers, then at medieval maps, including Matthew Paris, the Gough map and an Anglo-Saxon map of c.1025.
