The Mansio
The Mansio
The Mansio is a specially commissioned contemporary touring structure, travelling across the borderlands of Northern England and coming to rest in locations along Hadrian’s Wall. A collaboration between Hexham Book Festival and Arts&Heritage, it is a space in which the work of writers can be shared with the public. Eight authors were invited to take up residence at locations around Hadrian’s Wall between September 2015 and March 2016 to contemplate the theme of borders, boundaries and frontiers.
