Borderline Funny explores the depiction of ancient Rome's great northern frontier of Hadrian’s Wall in cartoons.

The exhibition will feature cartoons from the 19th to the 21st century, including some originally produced for Punch, Private Eye and the Illustrated London Evening News.

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.

Curated by the Friends of Segedunum.
