Divided into thematic sections the contributions presented here to celebrate her many achievements all represent at least one aspect of Lindsay s research interests. These encompass social and industrial aspects of northern frontier forts- new insights into inscribed and sculptural stones specific to military communities- religious, cultural and economic connotations of Roman armour finds- the economic and ideological penetration of romanitas in the frontiers as reflected by individual objects and classes of finds- evidence of trans-frontier interactions and invisible people- the role of John Clayton in the exploration and preservation of Hadrian s Wall and its material culture- the detailed consideration of individual objects of significant interest- and a discussion of the widespread occurrence of mice in Roman art.
