Borderline Funny at Segedunum


Borderline Funny is a new exhibition at Segedunum Roman Fort and Museum in Newcastle which explores the depiction of ancient Rome's great northern frontier of Hadrian’s Wall in cartoons.

It is also the first time an exhibition dedicated to cartoons about Hadrian's Wall has been shown! 

Featuring Roman era graffiti, cartoons from the 19c - 21c, some funny, some satirical, including new original work produced for the exhibition referencing contemporary topics such as Brexit and US politics. 

Also featuring are works of the late Roger Oram, who produced the Arbeia Society magazine, and many other cartoon works imagining life on Hadrian’s Wall.

This exhibition coincides with the 14th Pilgrimage to Hadrian’s Wall in July 2019. This decennial event will see almost 250 ‘Pilgrims’ tour the Wall for a week, reviewing the latest discoveries from the past ten years.
