The booklet and related leaflets were designed to develop the social and policy impacts from Tales of the Frontier (2007-2013), a project undertaken at Durham University Archaeology Department.
The present initiative was funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council.
The project was partnered by Tyne and Wear Archives & Museums.
Particular thanks are owed to John Scott (Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site Management Plan Co-ordinator) and Kerry Shaw (Hadrian's Wall Community Champions Project Co-ordinator).
The Project Team included Professor Richard Hingley (Principal Investigator), Dr Rob Witcher (Co-Investigator) and Dr Kate Sharpe (Research Associate).
Ideas about the content and presentation of the leaflets were shaped by workshops involving a wide range of participants including heritage professionals, educators, artists, story-tellers, archaeologists, volunteers, and local people. Their contribution significantly enhanced the final output. The contents were researched and created by Dr Kate Sharpe. Special thanks are extended to Tim Padley (Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Carlisle), Mike Collins (Inspector of Ancient Monuments, English Heritage), Carolyne Baines (Churchwarden, St Michael's Church, Burgh-by-Sands), and Dr Stan Beckensall (independent researcher).
