Abstract:
During the second half of 1599 William Camden and Robert Cotton toured the Roman wall country in Northumberland and Cumberland collecting first-hand materials for the new edition of Camden's Britannia. Britannia was the foundation of serious Roman epigraphical and archaeological study in Britain and the visit marks the start of systematic studies of the Hadrian's Wall and Cotton's collection of Roman inscribed stones (along with the difficult process of transporting them to his home in Huntingdonshire). Also discusses the sometimes disputed issues of where Camden and Cotton visited in the north and whether Cotton made a second visit to Northumberland to locate and collect inscribed stones, notably the important altars from Redesdale.
