Ang reblogged this on Anachronistic and Impulsive and commented:

I've signed up for a free online course on Hadrian's Wall via FutureLearn, offered by Newcastle University in the UK. Not that I don't already have enough to do with my own graduate studies at the University of New Hampshire, but I figured that I would reblog a site that came up on Twitter, and link to the course itself. It started Monday, but I believe there is still time to sign up. Please join me in learning about this really cool part of Roman History! https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/hadrians-wall #FLHadrian is the hashtag, find me under @ang_costello on Twitter for discussion. :)
