Roaming Portraits

Had an amazing few days recently researching objects from the collections at all the Roman sites along Hadrian’s Wall for the #Wallface legacy KS3 Art and Design Learning resource I’m producing. What a fantastic thing to be doing – 300 miles and 11 Roman museums in 3 days. What a treat!
