"Hadrian, a Roman emperor, the builder of Hadrian's Wall in the north of England, a restless and ambitious man who was interested in architecture and was passionate about Greece and Greek culture. Is this the common image today of the ruler of one of the greatest powers of the ancient world?" "Published to complement a major exhibition at the British Museum, this wide-ranging book rediscovers Hadrian. The sharp contradictions in his personality are examined, previous concepts are questioned and myths that surround him are exploded."--Jacket.

This book is recommended reading by Mary Beard. It was published in conjunction with the exhibit of Hadrian at the British Museum. The author has presented Hadrian's life through these exhibits that are beautifully represented in the book. His analysis of Hadrian's life uses the latest archeological information and tries to sift out the old Christian prejudice that has coloured Hadrian's life for so long. A great book.
