Abstract:
The editor's introduction surveys Gerald Simpson's fifty years of research along the Wall. Part I describes the Haltwhistle Burn Head watermill, with discussion by Paul Wilson cogether with other relevant information from Chesters and Willowford. Part II, on the military works, describes how the Wall between Winshields and Peel Crag was saved from ruin and from threatened replacement by a more efficient sheep-excluder. At this time Simpson made fifteen cross-sections of the Wall to elucidate its history, and worked on the milecastles at Housesteads, Castle Nick and Winshields and on Turrets 39a-b. Latrines and other features at Housesteads are described, together with a Roman lime kiln and three medieval structures. Studies of coarse pottery from stratified deposits are included, and the editor upholds Simpson's chronology against more recent interpretations.
