How do you manage what might be called the longest museum in the world? To find out in the most down-to-earth way possible, Arthur Gillette recently hitched a rucksack onto his shoulders and hiked some 70 km along the many extant vestiges (and a string of attendant museums) of the Roman wall that originally stretched 120 km across England from east to west, from the North Sea to the Solway Firth. The author, an intrepid outdoorsman, is former editor-in-chief of Museum International and, since his retirement in 1998, a freelance writer on cultural heritage issues and guide to strolls through the history of Paris.
