About Us

The Hadrianic Society was formed in 1971 by Professor Brian Dobson for a group of like-minded individuals to undertake extra-curricular study of Hadrian’s Wall and the Roman Army. It was spawned out of adult education classes ran by Brian at the University of Durham in the 1960s and 70s.

Nowadays the Society has several hundred members and meets once a year at the Roman Army School conference; this is held in Spring every year in Durham city. Membership is mixed between archaeological professionals and interested amateurs (although in many cases the lines are blurred) all of whom share a passion for studying the Roman World, especially the military and frontiers. The Hadrianic Society is a platform by which information is shared, discussion is undertaken, arguments are encouraged, the Roman world is promoted and much enjoyment is had.
