This dissertation will look at the transition from the Late Pre-Roman Iron Age through to the Roman period in what is today’s northern England and Scotland, specifically looking at the native communities and their interaction across and around the frontier of Hadrian’s Wall. It will compare the engagement of native peoples on either side of the frontier zone with each other and with the Romans occupying the Wall.

This research expands the recent thinking that has been developing over the last few years in this area of study, the idea of a frontier zone with both native and military elements interacting, rather than a pure military barrier. It also looks to expand the knowledge of the native peoples engagement with each other across Hadrian’s Wall frontier as well as with Roman culture on the boundaries of the Empire.

The archaeological evidence relating to the native populations either side of the Wall will be examined on the basis of mainstream published literature, journals of the topic, as well as Historic Environments Record Data from Northumberland, Cumbria and Scotland.

This project aims to achieve a more indepth understanding of these populations by studying interaction change in comparison with the Roman arrival; the construction of and impact of life with Hadrian’s Wall.
