Hadrian’s Wall Cross References

Hadrian's Wall: Life on the Roman Frontier
Hadrian’s Wall: Life on the Roman Frontier

On the last run of the course we cross-referenced it to the Archaeology’s Dirty Little Secrets course and also to the Roman Architecture course. This time we have provided some suggested links between the Portus and Hadrian’s Wall courses.

We will update this page as we create additional cross-references. Many thanks to all the learners on the Archaeology of Portus course who also studied on the Hadrian’s Wall course and who have helped in making these study connections. There are many more conceptual and thematic links that we will explore in a later blog post.
