Hadrian's Wall is developing a partnership with The Great Wall of China. An exhibition of photographs, which features both the Great Wall and areas of Hadrian's Wall, will go on display in London on August 2 at Central Hall, Westminster.
The Chairman of PPMG, the Chinese publishing house staging the exhibition, is visit Hadrian's Wall July 30.
Images of Housesteads Crags and Castle Nick are part of the exhibition.
Between 2001 and 2011 volunteers led by photographer Zhang Baotian researched and collected old photographs of the Great Wall taken by archaeologists, geographers, travellers and enthusiasts over the last 140 years, and then took photos of the same locations on the wall today.
Future collaborations between PPMG and the Hadrian's Wall Trust will include tourism, conference and publishing projects.
The exhibition will be at Central Hall, Westminster from August 2-4. It then moves to Charing Cross Library on August 17 - September 17 and to the School of Oriental and African Studies, Russell Square, London from September 18 -November 2. Entry to all venues is free.
