Housesteads is the most popular site on Hadrian's Wall, with its well-excavated remains bringing us closer to the 800 men who garrisoned the fort at any one time. As James Crow charts the development and growth of the fort, as well as the enclosures and features outside its walls, he discusses the builders and occupants, the civilian population, and the history of its excavation during the last two centuries. This study is supported throughout with plans and photographs of the fort, artifacts, inscriptions, and excavators.
