Abstract:
A consideration of the practical aspects of the Wall's construction and design, based on remaining archaeological evidence for the broad wall from Newcastle to the Irthing, and constrained by the practicalities of building techniques. The curtain wall, milecastle gateways, turrets, and roofs are considered, along with the possible coordination of manpower needed to operate a system of defence. The omission of forts from the original building scheme, coupled with the narrowing of the wall to as little as six feet in places may indicate a change in purpose and function. A case is made for the turrets being intended as primary accommodation, and for there having been towers with observation windows to both north and south. Also postulates the theory that the curtain wall builders arrived prior to the milecastles and turrets reaching full height. There are two appendices, `Appendix 1: the height of the wall' (46--9) and `Appendix 2: barrack accommodation' (49).
